Cracked the Crystal Malt and Barley in a ziplock plastic bag with a rolling pin. Then added to 2 litres of boiling water removed from the heat and steeped for 30 mins with the lid on. Strained the contents through a sieve with muslin cloth (to collect grain husks etc) into the fermenter and added the other ingredients (DME + Can) and mixed with cold water up to 23 Litres. Fermented for 2 weeks at approx 18-20C and then bottled for a further 4 weeks before drinking. Cheers
