I used the bag because I forgot the buy rice hulls. It worked just fine. The mash tun contained a lot more floating pumpkin matter during the sparge compared to when I drained the first runnings. The sparge drained a little slower, but it never stuck. Just took my time with it. I'd say it added an extra 15 minutes or so, but that's probably because I wanted to be more cautious about it and didn't want to risk a stuck sparge.

Has anybody tried a 50/50 mix of Maris Otter and 2-Row?

And how do you think the taste would differ from mashing at 154 (medium body) vs 156 (full body)?

In BN podcast I heard the suggestion to go high on MO. I will probably try that once I get my other grains. This will be awesome!

Think i'll try a 50/50 mix this weekend @154

I don't want to go too high on the MO, as i don't want the taste to focus on the malts instead of the spices. But i'm hoping the nutty/biscuit taste will compliment this recipe.

But i'm hoping that those whom have brewed with MO can chime in on their thoughts about using it.
