I have been lurking for a little while and just registered!
I just bottled my first ever batch, an amber ale, and thanks for all the posts here.
I am going to brew my second batch on Saturday but I have a question.
I am brewing a Blueberry Wheat Ale from an extract kit, but the kit came with whole grains for steeping instead of cracked grain like the crystal was in my first kit.
Do I get the hammer out and crack the grain or is it supposed to be used whole for steeping?
