Is there a way to change the length of the blog excerpt? I am currently using the Minimal theme. I working within Sections.

My excerpts are showing about 2 1/2 to 3 lines of the article or 166 characters. I would like more of the article or all of the article to show without having to click away to "read more."

Thanks in advance!
