I would say put them loosely in a plastic bag (or someway similar) then use a bottle or rolling pin to crack their hulls I dont think you want them 'ground' just cracked to let their beautiful goodness come out during the steeping.

I have a rolling pin, that is what I will do. This is my first extract from a can, not sure what to expect. We'll know soon enough.
Thanks for the tip(s)!

I just walked up from the brewshop after milling 22 pounds for a 5.5 gallon batch of Imperial IPA.

I'll never get tired of the smell.

Well, the rolling pin worked great! Split the pound of 20L into 3 batches and crushed them in a large zip-lock with a rolling pin. My recipe calls for a 1/2lb. so I have a 1/2lb. for my next brew. I also chewed a few of them. Taste like Sugar Smacks!!!

Here is the recipe....

8lbs. Alexander's Pale Male Extract
1/2lb. 20L

1.0 oz Cascade 6.6% at 60 min.
0.5 oz. Cascade 6.6% at 30 min.
0.25 oz. Cascade 6.6% at 15 min.
0.25 oz. Cascade 6.6% at 5 min.

WLOO1 Yeast

I wanted a bit of Munich LME in there to get as close to Edworts Haus Pale Ale as I could but my shop didnt have it in stock.

Brewing it this afternoon.

Not sure who Alexander is, but you may wanna reconsider!
