I’m going to be brewing a pumpkin ale on Monday, but I forgot to order rice hulls from NB. The only lbhs in my area closes at 5 today and is closed Sunday and Monday. I’m currently at work so won’t be able to make it today. The only stuck sparge I’ve ever had was a pumpkin beer and I’d like to avoid that headache. Has anyone ever found rice hulls anywhere other than a brewstore? Are there other viable substitutions that won’t contribute flavor?
Maybe throw it in one of these? They are pretty fine, but not sure how much it will hold back pumpkin.http://www.lowes.com/pd_126394-968-1158 ... Id=1008387
Add the pumpkin and spices to a secondary fermenter the same as a fruit addition.
