Rice and rice hulls are two different things...rice hulls impart nothing to the beer, they are used to keep the mash from sticking when using grains like rice, oats, rye or anything else that creates a sticky mash. So, you will want to use both rice and the rice hulls, but don't calculate your recipe as though the rice hulls will add any fermentables.
