I bought a bag of Dingham's Pilsner Malt and brewed 3 batches with it and all 3 beers had a cake like vanilla taste and smell to it. When I was moving my grain around I opened the bag and could smell the same vanilla oder. Has anyone used this malt and noticed the same thing?

Does it actually smell *vanilla*? or just "like vanilla"?
It comes to my mind that there is a starch eating beetle/bug that does secrete a very characteristic smell. It is not exactly _vanilla_ though. Not sure how common that is in US though. It's often said to smell like lysol, an old desinfectant egent. But I have no idea if that ever existed in the US market.
Just an idea.

That's about the only brand of pilsner malt I've ever bought and never have noticed that.
