Opinions on my mini-mash wit recipe?
I read that rice hulls help the flaked wheat during the mash, but how much should I use?
This will be my first mini mash, so I'm a little unsure on how much of each grain you need to convert the starches to sugar. Will this grain bill work as far as everything getting converted properly?
