So I asked my wife to pick up a third of a pound of Special B for me when she was out, but she forgot to have the brew store crack it for us. What's the easiest way to do this at home? Thanks!

Yes, if you don't have a grain mill, then a rolling pin, wine bottle, or mallet with the grains in a ziplock bag or two will be the best way to do it.
