The stickiest stuff in the entire known universe...Liquid Malt Extract.

EDIT: jyda, just sell the car.

Well it wasn't too bad. Lots of boiling hot water, a shop vac, and about an hour and a half. I ended up with perfectly dissolved wort in the shop vac. Though I did go against conventional wisdom and dumped this batch

In November I was getting a delivery from BrewBrothers while I was in Portland who does free deliveries in the area over $200.

They called to say they were running late because of an LME disaster. They use CO2 to push LME out of the 55 gallon barrels into smaller containers when a customer has an order, they left one under pressure over night on accident and when they came into work that morning the barrel had exploded LME everywhere.

reading this I have a flashback to Discovery Channel Brew Masters - the massive glue spill - probably less fun than LME!
