I don't think I can find any rice hulls here. Would any cellulose material do the job? As in

I'm in one of the beer hating regions of the world right now, but I think I got together
everything I need to make a sort-of all grain wheat beer. If you guys could look over the
ingredients I have on...

I decided to pop a few of the bottles and sprinkle a little turbo yeast in. Hopefully that'll
dry them out and carb them up. I'll find out in a few weeks.

If the yeast are all dead, I think they would just sink to the bottom of the fermenter. Toss in
a new pack the next day. If they start fermenting though, you saved yourself that hour drive.I

Pitch it and see what happens. Any yeast spores can probably take the freeze. Worst case
