Got some tubing from my IC to fit on there. Blew in and it ran a little faster for a second or two but now it's running cloudy and as slow as ever

Mine ran cloudy for a little while after blowing in the tube. It got going pretty good and cleared up pretty quickly. I just tried to get a good hot and cold break to compensate for the chunks that got into the boil. I figured better cloudy wort than no wort. Good luck.

Last night I brewed an Irish Red. Had just put a brand new braid in the mash tun. I vorlaufed, then ran my runnings through a coffee filter that sat inside my funnel with a filter in that. Super clean runnings. It always bugs the **** out of my when I get little chunks in my wort.

I've used up to 35% rye malt, never used a rice hull in my life and never had a stuck mash with it. Frankly, it depends on your system and procedures. You can help things by doing a rest at 130F and then proceed as usual.

Man, people on here told me a single infusion mash was all I needed, period. 2:30 now and I'm STILL LAUTERING.

Could you stir in the rice hulls now and re-vorlauf?

I'm finally boiling. I have ~6.5 gallons at ~1.043 after correcting for temperature. I was shooting for ~1.07x

It's a little late to help this specific event, but yes, it works. I did this last weekend with a very slow runoff. I dumped in a couple handfulls of rice hulls and stirred real well. I then vorlaufed and the runnings were back to normal.
