Which malt to buy at home-brew store?

September 3, 2009 - 11:04am -- Glass-Weaver

The malt shelf in the home-brew aisle of a local hardware store holds a bewildering parade of exotic titles, none of which say, "Best for Bread"!  I was reluctant to spend $20 on the wrong thing, so I slunk away malt-free.  The clerk seems clueless about beer-making, much less bread-baking.  Is anyone familiar with the typical malt offerings, and which one would be most appropriate?  (I know that I could order from an online bread supplier, but I'd rather spend the money on malt than shipping.)
