It looks like the sap from the stem soaked through onto my leafs it started eating away the first leaf in the pile but the rest are covered in it ive pulled them out of the kiln and will hang them for a day anyone had this problem? did it ruin the tobacco?

So we got a pile of uncured leaf, in a hot box, and liquid ran out of the stem butts and soaked the leaf?
Well, if that is the case, it ain't gonna be the same as if it had been properly hung in the kiln.
sounds kinda like you are on your way to some sort of perique effect???
Air dry it all so it's just pliable, compress it in a paper wrapped brick, let it set for a year, then shave off a tad to blend in with your regular mix to see if you like it !
It could turn out real interesting.
Best
