I just started brewing today and started with the Brewer's Best American Amber kit. After completing all boiling and starting the fermentation process, I realized I forgot to steep the Crushed Crystal Malt. In fact, it was not used at all.
Steep the grain in a quart or two of water. Boil 10 minutes and add to the fermenter.
Or just leave it out.
