Now you know what it is, there's an interesting blog where the author recommends DME as the protein source for making candi sugar, saying that it fuels broader Maillard reactions than DAP, with a resultant wider range of flavours. I've got some lime and DME ready to go for my next experiment, also the first using an alkalai rather than acid.
