Good luck and I'm sure all will go well. Don't fret too much about not nailing everything exactly, those things will come naturally on future brews.

I'd suggest you get EVERYTHING prepped & labeled ahead of time so you can focus on the new process. Made my switch much less stressful!

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Good Call.

And at the end of the day remember, your making beer. More than likely, no matter if you screw something or not, you'll still end up with beer.

Rye is usually one of the more difficult grains to use for AG as it has no hull to help form a filter bed in the mash tun. Adding rice hulls (cheap, impart no flavor, just replaces the missing hulls from the barley) will help. If you are planning on BIAB mashing, you can ignore the rice hulls because the nylon mesh becomes the filter.
