While I haven't needed to add rice hulls with any of the batches I've done, several members of my club have.

It would seem to make sense that if you can mix your adjuncts evenly with your malt, you'll have more contact with enzymes. If this is true you should get better conversion than by adding them to the top. That's my theory anyway.

If you can find a source other than a homebrew shop they are cheap. I've heard 1.50 a pound from one shop which is silly for something that adds nothing to OG.

the stout tasted good when i racked it to the secondary yesterday i am mightly pleased, despite the hassle.

my mash yesterday didn't stick (it was only two row malt), so i am gonna rebrew the same stout recipe next week.

When I mash, I usually allow a couple inches of water on top of the grain bed. This way, even when I draw wort off the bottom for the recirc, I still have enough liquid to keep the grain bed from compressing. My system is pretty primitive. I draw off the bottom into a pitcher, then pour back on the top through a slotted spoon. After doing that for a half hour or so, all the grain dust and undesirable "goopy" stuff seems to be locked up in the grain bed. That way, it doesn't make it into my beer.

It usually takes about 45-60 min for me to sparge. Then, on to the boil.

Mmmmmm sweet nectar of the gods...

i rebrewed the same recipe with the flaked barley on the top of the grains in the tun... no problems... i noticed the flaked barley easily doubled in size, so i could see where in the last mash it clogged the manifold.

w00t!
