DetailsRice Hulls are used to give your mash an effective filter bed. While they may be used in any all-grain batch for this purpose, they should definitely be used when mashing large amounts of flaked adjuncts or wheat malt.

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 3 answersIs there a recommended wt% on grain bill to add these to a mash?BEST ANSWER: The amount of rice hulls depends on the mash content. I currently use one pound of rice hulls (6%) for a 10 gal. batch of Kentucky Common that contains 6.5 pounds of gelatinized grits in a 16 pound grain bill so it is somewhat difficult to lauter. If you are doing a wheat beer with over 50 percent wheat malt or more importantly a rye beer with moderate to high rye malt content, you probably need to use a ratio of about 10 to as much as 15% rice hulls per pounds of mash grain.
Hope this helps.
