when calculating volumes, do you count adjuncts in also? In other words, if I am mashing/sparging 15 pounds of grain and 1 pound of rice hulls do I base my volumes on 15 or 16 pounds?

SHOULD I rehydrate them? just soak them? I am also going to be using torrified wheat - anything else needed to do with this?

I rehydrate them if I'm a bit low on water, and my MLT will be full. Otherwise, no- you can just add another quart of water into the mash. Torrified wheat can go into the mash with the other grains, no worries!
