Default Crushing Crystal malt?

I recieved my ingredients from Beer and More Beer. I had asked that all the grains come premilled. But the Crystal malt is not crushed. And on the reciept. it says milled next to all the other grains. But not the crystal malt. my question is. Doesn't the Crystal malt have to be milled? What do you think.

Thanks
Mike.

I crushed all of the grains. Gotta do that to get the goodness out of them. Can't imagine why they didn't.

Yes it has to be milled. If you can stand the wait, I'd call them and ask them to ship you a bag of milled.

x2, when I ordered my first kit, i didn't have the grains milled and had to use a rolling pin and a large zip top bag.

I heard using soup or veggie can works great. The ridges at top and bottom help in keeping you from crushing to a powder
