Haha, I know what you mean about DME. I've used it twice now, and the first time I made the mistake of just dumping the entire 5lb bag in. First off, the steam from the boil made a couple tsp worth stick to the bag like icicles. I decided to dip the bag in the boil to get them off. Then, i had one massive chunk of DME that was stuck to itself. After about 4 minutes of stirring I had it all dissolved, but still a good learning experience.
Next time I use DME, I'm going to pour it in a bowl and shake it over the wort, unless anybody else knows a better idea.
