Has anyone ever experienced a leakage of liquid extract shipped by mail? There are no home brew shops where I live (Fiji) and the extract has to travel a long way to get to me.

Nope. I've never had one leak before.

I have never experienced a leak. In my experience, they package extract pretty well. I wouldn't worry about it at all.

Only once in almost a decade. I purchased a 40 lb box of leftovers and one leaked. That was one bag out of the 8 in the box.
