I do credit card spacing for barley, forget the exact number that is but I've never had a single issue with a stuck sparge not using rice hulls. I actually only use rice hulls for my pumpkin ales....

In the many years I'd been beer connoisseuring I've come to find it simply depends on the beer and that draft doesn't always mean it's better. For example, Paulaner Hefeweizen in a can is by far...

Commercial breweries brew on a far far larger scale and don't use equipment anywhere near equivalent to homebrewers, just as their mash tuns and fermenters look quite different than what we have at...
