Rice Hulls, weighing 1 lb, are a popular choice among beer enthusiasts, primarily serving as an efficient filtering medium. They are especially beneficial when brewing wheat beers, as they effectively prevent the mash from getting stuck, ensuring a smooth brewing process. This traditional method of preventing a stuck mash has been tried and tested by brewers over the years.

The typical analysis of Rice Hulls reveals that they do not contribute to the extract, color, or flavor of your beer. This means they solely function to improve the brewing process without altering the taste or appearance of your beer.

Rice Hulls are not just a filtering aid, but they also enhance the speed of vorlauf and lautering. This makes them particularly effective when brewing high gravity beers with a big grist, beers made with high percentages of specialty malts, and wheat and rye beers.

For optimal results, add 2-5% of Rice Hulls directly to the mash before lautering. This will ensure a smooth and efficient brewing process, allowing you to enjoy your homemade beer without any hitches.

Apart from beer making, Rice Hulls can also be used as a natural mulch in gardening. They help to retain soil moisture and prevent weeds, making them a versatile addition to your home.

STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE

When it comes to storage and shelf life, it's recommended to store Rice Hulls in a cool, low humidity, pest-free environment at temperatures of less than 90°F. This will help maintain their freshness and effectiveness. Whole kernel diastatic and preground malts, when stored properly, are best used within 6 months from the date of manufacture. Whole kernel roasted malts may begin experiencing a slight flavor loss after 18 months.
