Default Rye malt and the mash?

Wondering about Mashing with Rye Malt?

Do I need to adjust my temps as all or can I just do a single infusion with a mash of 155 for 60 minutes and then sparge usual with 170 degree water?

Also, we discussed 4%rice hulls to help with the grain bed and the stickiness issues. What are peoples experience with that?

First time using Rye. Thanks any help.

I've only done one rye and only a pound for ten gallons. I didn't do anything different and had no problems. Used malted rye.

On Saturday I used rye for the first time in my smoked rye ale...4 lbs (30%) with 1/2 lb rice hulls. I did a single infusion mash at 152 F. I didn't have any problems with my sparge. My OG was 1.068 & I was shooting for 1.072, so pretty close. One guy I talked to said he used 70% rye in one of his recipes because smaller quantities of it gives a very subtle flavor. I think Northern Brewer recommended using up to 50% rye. We'll see how mine turns out. Hopefully it's detectable.

I always do about 2-3 big handfuls of Rice Hauls and dont have any problems.

And mash the same as I normally would.

I used 23% rye in a brew this past weekend, used no hulls and had no issues with stuck mash, but then again I use a different set-up.

It did however plug up my outlet filter from the mash tun to the fermenter.

Its some sticky stuff.

We're doing an 11% Rye Malt and 4% rice hulls in the mash so far. Its going ot be a rye PA brewed by itself and then one batch sendaried with Turnip. Do you think 11% will be enough to get a little rye bite ot come through or is it too light?

I made a rogen with 50% rye and no rice hulls. No sticking just slow runoff.

I think you need 20% to get noticeable flavor and it seems the American stuff is more pungent than the stuff from Europe.

I've only lately tasted a few ryes. I have loved all. I was very timid on my first. I'm gonna cut loose next time. Rye is good!

I've done a 70% rye roggenbier with 10% wheat and 10% malted barley. We used 2 lbs of rice hulls and it still formed a concrete-like mashbed. The run off was extremely slow, but well worth the effort. We I doing this again, I'd knock the rye percentage down quite a bit and use more malted barley for the backbone.
