Default Carapils

I bought a pound of Crosby & Baker Muntons Cara-pils malt yesterday and plan on brewing today. I don't know if I need to get it milled or not. Anyone have some advice? Sorry I'm such a brewergin.

Yes, it needs to be crushed.

Just put it in a big Ziploc bag and go over it a couple times with a rolling pin and you will be fine

+1 as this is standard practice for me.

I never seem to have mine crushed enough (in my somewhat amatuer opinion) so I usually roll over it a time or two with the homebrew I'm about ready to drink.
