I wasn't trying to discourage it, only trying to let you know what size containers you needed. The sheer bulk of the project is many more times that compared to grain splits.

No worries Scott. I'm guessing these rice hulls in bulk are going to be somewhat of a PITA. I'm just want to make this as easy as possible for everyone involved. I know this is a huge undertaking for Stephin so if I can make things easier then I'm all for it.

Depends, does that "Go Blue" refer to UM? If so, sorry, they're already taken. :-)

Just kidding, 1/3 of the bag is available. Per the 3/30 price guide a 50lb bag is $21.50, so $7.17 each (plus shipping). Go Green!!

aaronbritton, I'm on board with estimating as well...even if they aren't as bad at splitting. I know how much volume 1 and 2 lbs is, I can only guess how much (uncompressed) 50 lbs is gonna be.

That sounds fine to me for the rice hulls, and I'm not gonna be too particular about the specific weight. I'll probably just bring a contractor bag and toss 'em in there, for the time being.

And I don't even mind a little ribbing from a Lansing fan, although you'd better hope they've got a replacement for Cousins.
