if your intent is to taste the rye, you're gunna need more. 2.2lbs in 12gals is pretty subtle

use lots of rice hulls with rye or you will have a gummy mess that is stuck.

I don't think he'll need lots if rice hulls with that small of an amount. He could probably get away without any...

I would use some rice hulls for sure. Last rye I did without rice hulls was a stuck sparge and pita to get the wort out. I mill my rye separably to get a good crush on it then adjust the mill back to normal for the rest of the grist. I use 1lb rice hulls otherwise this is one gooey, sticky mess.
Here is my rye pale ale:
5.5 gallon batch, 60 minute boil.
OG: 1.050 FG: 1.012
6 lbs rye malt (46%)
4 lbs pale ale (31%)
1 lb Munich (8%)
1 Lb Crystal 40L (8%)
1 lb flaked rye (toasted over an open fire) (8%)

1.25 OZ Citra at 60 min
1 oz Amarillo at 15 min
1 OZ Amarillo at 5 min
Dry Hop 1 OZ Amarillo at 21 days crash and bottle on day 28.

Mash:
Strike water is 17 Qts at 131F for a dough in at 122 for 20 minutes.
Decoction one is 4.25 Qt for a 140F step for 40 minutes.
Decoction two is 4.75 Qt for a 153F step for 40 minutes.
Sparge 17 Qts at 180F for 20 minutes.

Ferment at 64F
1 package US-05 yeast rehydrate.

+2. I've used up to 40% without hulls and no problems. It will depend to some extent on your system. The braid I use has never given me a stuck runoff in 424 batches. You might have more problems with a manifold or false bottom.
