Rice Hulls (Briess)Rice Hulls are a filtering aid that improve the speed of vorlauf and lautering. Rice Hulls are particularly effective when brewing high gravity beers with a big grist; beer made with high percentages of specialty malts; and wheat and rye beers. APPLICA

Wheat Malt, White (Rahr)It’s a great base malt for any style wheat beer. It has a doughy, malty, bready flavor and aroma, with white wheat having a slightly milder wheat flavor than red wheat. High protein levels in wheat lend a fullness of body and excellent head retention, but can lead to difficulty sparging. Use small amounts to enhance foam, or use up to 50% of the grist. Recommend incorporating rice hulls to prevent a stuck sparge when using greater than 25%.
