Both. If you are having troubles with stuck or slow draining sparges, then rice hulls might help.

Rye also comes to mind. Flaked grains or any grain that come in hulled form.

I use plenty of rice hulls in my oatmeal stout.

How many rice hulls would one use in a recipe that calls for 4.5 pounds of flaked wheat? My MLT has a copper manifold rather than a steel braid. Does that make any difference?

I usually put in about a half pound (which is more than you might think - rice hulls weight nothing). I don't actually weigh it - I buy it in 1 lb packages and then put about half of it in. FWIW.

Anytime I brew a recipe that has a good amount of wheat or anything that will turn to mush like oatmeal,pumpkin and the like I throw a couple of hand fulls in. I also presoak them in hot water they soak up a lot of water and I would rather it be water and not the wort.

ok, thanks.....Can you soak them, then throw them in when your done mashing, stir, then drain......That way the rice hulls don't mess with your mash temp at all.....

I was told that the rice hulls are supposed to go into the MLT first. That way, they create a "wet blanket" over your manifold which in turn creates a filter effect while draining the wort. I only used rice hulls once and thats what I did and it worked fine for my Hefe.
