Some great responses, thank you! Wanted to add a picture of my mash tun and add some more information I should have included in my previous post.
I do have a wound copper wire inside of my braid.
If you notice, I have separated the braid into two halves with a coupling in the middle to add a little weight to keep the braid on the bottom.
I do not crush the grains at home; I use the mill at the LHBS. It does not seem to be excessively fine.
My last batch was a kolsch. It had about 2.5lbs of white wheat. But the mash drained about the same as my previous batch. Fast at first and very slowly after the initial couple of quarts. I have not used the rice hulls. I actually meant to but forgot to purchase them...
I believe my braid is 1/2" or 3/8". I can't remember...
