Hopefully someone else pipes in with experience in sparge troubles with wheat because I guess I just haven't had enough experience.
The rice hulls first seems to make sense. I think I will at least try that next time. I appreciate your help and anyone else who might have any suggestion.

Thinking about making this using some Nottingham as I have a packet in my supply. Any thoughts on how it might turn out?

Humann Brewing,

I tried your recipe today. Looking forward to tasting how it turns out. I the amount of hops a bit to make sure they came in overall at 30%. Thanks for posting this recipe. If it comes close to Widmer Hef, I think I might get an open checkbook to buy more brewing equipment. The wife loves the beer.

good to hear, what part of Washington are you from? I spent the first 27 years of my life up there and miss it dearly.
