Default DME Dilemma

A few pounds of my malt dried out and hardened. Any ideas on how to make it useable.

I would put it in a sturdy sack and pound the heck out if it with a hammer. Then put the chunks in hot water and stir thoroughly to let them dissolve before turning on the heat.

Thanks I'll try that.
Scarry when your malt gets a stiffy.

It's unbelievably hygroscopic. Sucks water right out of the air. My practice is to triple-bag it when I buy in bulk, and keep the bags open as little as possible when I'm scooping it out.
