How does the hay smell? If it is truly carmalized, it will have a tobacco smell.(your nose may vary) As MulberryGrove stated, the hay wouldn't caramalize at 18% but I have found that you can't completely trust the tester. If the stems are not cured you can have a tester show okay and find that the hay will sweat excessively after it is baled due to the moisture being released from the stems.
Every area is different but if you study up on some of the "universal truths of hay making" (see hay wilson in TX) you can help minimize the effects of those differences.
