The only JW bag I have around is too badly damaged to be any use as a test, and Fawcetts use a separate polythene bag inside the sack, which one would expect to be perfectly impermiable. I've not bought any Weyerman.roach said:i would be interested to see a side by side comparison with traditional packaging of JW or weyermann for example.Sean said:Well, I can now definitively say that moisure can find it's way in, despite the liner (probably through the seems in the floor of the bag).Sean said:I don't have access to a leaky concrete floor, but I do have some empty Powells sacks full of sticks for fire lighting, so I've stood one in a small puddle to see what happens.
i also think the powells seams are more susceptible to stretching because of the brown paper bag packaging which is not quite as strong as the normal bags. I know that very little force is required to open up the seam at the top of the bag of powells cf JW eg.
It shouldn't be wet at( all after it's been kilned. Why do you think water getting into the storage silos or wherever it's stored bulk), is more plausible than it getting into the sacks? Presumably it's safe to say it wasn't visibly obvious when it was bagged - no-one would stand there and happly bag umpteen tonnes of clearly mouldy grain and not say something.My guess is that it was contaminated before it went into the bag.
Probably sat around wet for too long and the growth started then.
Maybe it has been recalled now. Reading between the lines it doesn't sound like they are shifting vast quantities of Munich and Organic, so they probably don't have any other batches to replace it with.I reckon that the entire batch of that malt should be re-called and replaced
