Default rice hull question

just had a question on if I need to use rice hulls or not for a ryepa I have a pvc manifold in my mashtun I am going to be useing 20% rye and the rest 2 row. I have read that people have issues with wheat and stuck sparges I have not the last one I made was 60% wheat and no stuck sparge
so should I use some rice hulls to be safe?

Just Saturday I opted not to use rice hulls and there was no stuck sparge.

Yes, use rice hulls, 1-2 lbs it will make the world of difference in the speed of your run-off.
