Quick question. Anyone every use DME after it has gotten moisture into it? I have a small ziplock back that I have been using to prime my bottles and looks like I got some moisture in it when I sealed it last. The clumps seemed to break up ok and it is still mostly powder but I am bottling tommorrow and need to know if I can use it or should I pick up some more from my HBS?
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, then to speak and remove all doubt.

Dissolve it in warm water and it will be fine.

It's probably past its prime, but I bet it still does the trick.

May you go marching in three-measure time
Dressed up as asses, drunk to the nines
Swing from the rafters, shouting those songs
Gone unsung for far too long
