What was your mash schedule? Single infusion? temp?
I've never used rice hulls before. I notice it said (for the rice hulls) mash 5.o min. (huh?) do I add the rice hulls into the tun then the grain on top?
Thanks!!

I just mix the Rice hulls in with the grain, because you are going to stir it up in the Mash Tun anyway...it just helps create a better grain filter bed so you don't get a stuck mash. Because wheat doesn't have husks.

I'm brewing this on Monday. Still need to pick out a maple syrup, thinking of going to Whole Foods and seeing if they have anything cool.

Did you guys add a fresh batch of yeast 3 days before bottling? I see that most of the recipes in this book suggest that, but I've always primed with boiled DME on bottling day and that works for me. New yeast pack before bottling seems like overkill to me, but this recipe also has a different priming recipe...really tempted to skip the second yeast pack and just prime with corn sugar + maple syrup.

well, this was my first all grain recipe...things to remember: auto siphon, spend more time calculating how much water will be absorbed by grains, and calibrate my brew pot...going to reattempt this recipe in a few weeks
