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?

Interesting.

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.

Dingeman's? Wow, it's always been great for me.
LIfe begins at 60...1.060, that is.

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