    Rice Hulls?

    I'm new to all grain so this might sound simplistic. From things I've read, when brewing a wheat beer rice hulls are recommended. Is this actually the case with BIAB? I thought the rice hulls were to prevent a "stuck mash." This doesn't happen in BIAB, right? My understanding of a stuck mash...

    HERMS, Decoction...and Rice Hulls

    I bought a Blichmann ProPilot 10 gallon electric HERMS system last summer and have been working my way through many of my favorite recipes since then.

    Extra fine milling plus rice hulls is higher efficiency?

    Hello everyone, I was wondering if milling finer then normal what would lead to better extraction but less efficiency as too finely milled grains can cause a stuck mash. What if one would counter this by adding rice hulls? Would this give a better efficiency in the end? Cheerz

    Mash thickness, stuck mash and rice hulls on grainfather, ace, klarstein

    Hello everyone, I've recently started brewing bigger batches on a grainfather like system but i'm running into problems with a stuck mash. My current water to grain ratio is on the low end if i'm correct (about 2.5liters per KG). Total grain bill is about 12kg and I have only 30 liters in my...

    Wheat Mashing in a Jug Cooler...Resting easy? Y/N?

    My friend and I have made maybe 8 or 10 AG batches at 2.5 gallons using the Beerformulator tool. They have all worked well and seem to taste just fine. Except one... the first recipe I tried was a wheat beer and I came out cloudy, which is OK for wheat, but this type of Cloudy was detrimental...
