Stuck Sparge fix

Keep some rice hulls on hand, use them if you think you should, but when you get that unexpected stuck sparge just throw in a few handfulls and mix and try again.

I definitely don't get stuck sparges; it's my efficiency that's stuck, way down in the mid 60's. I'm always having to buy more grain than a recipe calls for to compensate for it.

Time to get myself a grain mill, I suppose, as I don't think my LHBS will let me regap their mill.
Ask them to run it through twice. See what happens to your efficiency after that.
