Danish term or phrase: vende krudt
Hi, I've come across an odd phrase and am wondering if it's a special expression. It's in an email response about possible patent infringement.

XXXX har spurgt YYY om vi har en holdning til et ZZZZ patent. Det er ikke et patent vi har kigget på før og vil lige vende hvor meget krudt vi skal putte i den.

Thanks for your help!

discuss how much energy
Explanation:
'Vende krudt' is not an idiom; the two words are independent. 'Vende' = 'discuss' and 'krudt' = 'energy' here. They say they will discuss how much energy/effort or how many resources to throw at this.
