really you want to break the husk off from the grain without breaking the husk up into small bits or powder. And if you can break the "meat" fo the grain into 2 or 3 bits at the same time even better.Denny's Evil Concoctions said:

Just cracking them open results in a coarse crush and will likely yield very poor efficiency. There should be at least some powder, even in a course crush.RobertHSmith said:My SWMBO says they look cracked to her and that she read somewhere that all you need is to crack them open. She usually is able to keep me from panicking. I still may get out her rolling pin and crush them...it may work out some frustrations...

EDIT: I'm wondering if my rolling pin attempt will work at all...or just make a huge mess
It'ts a lot easier when he grains are already cracked. You're screwed. lolbandt9299 said:My Barley Crusher fell apart the other day, I panicked, now I know I can roll it out, all 12+ pounds, ouch.
