Default All-Grain - Brad's Rye Ale

This is my first time using rye malt and I have to say I'm really impressed with the results. This beer has a nice full mouth-feel but a very clean finish. The malt flavour is complemented well by the spiciness of the rye. It has a great malt aroma as well as a deep coppery colour (the picture below is terrible).

Recipe Efficiency: 75%

2.00 kg. Rye Malt, 1.030

20.00 g. Hallertauer, Pellet, 4.00%, 45 min.
15.00 g. Hallertauer, Pellet, 4.00%, 15 min.
10.00 g. Hallertauer, Pellet, 4.00%, 5 min.

Extras
1.00 Irish Moss, 15 Min.

Mash
Ratio: 2.5L/KG
Sacc. Rest: 153F @ 60 min.

I've never used rye malt- but I have used flaked rye. In Beersmith, there is a "warning" saying that you shouldn't use more than 15% rye malt, due "stuck mashes". Is that something that you had an issue with? Would rice hulls help?

I've read the same warnings. I haven't had any problems, but I think it's due to the fact I use a rectangular cooler which has much less pressure on the grain bed. At least a half pound of rice hulls would be a must for a cylindrical cooler I think.

A little different hops but a lot like mine

I have used up to 20% and had a slow runoff so I'll probably take BierMunchers advice and get some rice hulls just in case.
Rye malt also gives abetter flavor than flaked, IMHO
