The process starts with our barley being malted at our partner malthouses, and the resulting malt is delivered here. Milling leaves the malted barley in fragments of various sizes, but leaves its husks largely intact. This releases the precious insides of the grain, without grinding the husks of the malt too finely. The husk of the barley grain needs to be preserved, as these will act as a natural filter at a later stage of the brewing process. The style of beer is largely determined by the malt: the colour, the taste, and its overall character.
