Default Brain Fart

Hey all.

So I was at the LHBS picking up my things, and forgot to
crack? my specialty grains.

They are closed on Saturdays, and I have my heart set on brewing tonight.

I've been racking my brain trying to come up with a solution, and I was thinking about throwing the grain (only 1.5 lb) onto some wax paper, putting a layer of wax paper over it, and taking a rolling pin to it.

On a scale from 1 to 10, how much will this method suck?

Thanks in advance.

The rolling pin method will work for specialty grains. Just be careful the grain doesn't shoot out from underneath the paper all over the floor.

Been there, done that. Pound and half isn't that bad. Sit down in front of the TV with a beer, it'll go fast

Right on.

How fine should the finished product be?

And how do I get an avatar?

A big zip-lock baggie works well for holding the grain while you bash it too...

You're in better shape than you think. I vote for a 4 on the suck scale.
