    I've find out that some fermenting maize in storage could fail to a steamy smoking stuff rising rougly 50C maybe more, fairly damp, if the store wasn't wrapped well enough from surrouding air according to the farmers. I'd like to know what raises the warmth, and what part does air take in it ? Why the fermentation gets failed, over the fact that anaerobic process failed ?
    I'm bad in chemistry, so if you could explain me in a more rough way.
    Is it methan production which bring the warmth so high ?
    Because there's no smell at all, just hot damp maize.
