Hazzah!!! I finally found ale recipe that I can use all Liberty Hops for. I am just wondering if I should throw #2 rice hulls in the mix for this recipe. I am batch sparging. Thoughts?

TIA

2# is a lot of Rice Hulls.

Prolly won;t need them but 1/2lb wont hurt.

You definitely do not need 2# of them. I'd go with the above suggestion and use a half pound.

I generally only use rice hulls when I'm either using a sticky adjunct (e.g. wheat or rye), thick mash, or when maxing out my mash kettles grain capacity. These are all times when you would need to worry about a stuck mash.

As stated by the others, 2# is way too much.
