They make for a slow drain and great efficiency...don't knock 'em!



Try a 50% rye beer for your next batch

When I hit the lottery I'm starting an extract company that covers every grain and temperature range. Until then.......I shall embrace my stuck sparges but they can still suck my @$$.

I brewed a Belgian Wit with 50% flaked wheat. Completely forgot to buy rice hulls and didnt realize until i started my protein rest. LHBS is 40 minutes away. LONGEST SPARGE EVER! and yes, they can suck my @$$

I didn't use rice hulls for the Wit I'm drinking now, lautered fine. Grist was half flaked wheat and 10% flaked oats on top of that, only 40% 2-row.



The key is a big @$$ manifold, a shallow grain bed, and a slow lauter...
