Milling, part of the brewing process, is the act of crushing the grain kernels to separate the husk from the seed, which contains the majority of the carbohydrates and sugars. This makes it easier to extract the sugars during mashing. Care must be taken when milling to ensure that the starch reserves are sufficiently milled without damaging the husk and providing coarse enough grist that a good filter bed can be formed during lautering.
