I am finding malt to be in many whiskey recipes but cannot find it anywhere in the stores.. Where is a good place to find some and what is a common malt used in whiskey?

Hey 88 try a beer brewing supply store. They usually carry malted grains, mostly barley, and also dry malt powders. Light, Amber, Dark, Sparling Amber, and Wheat, are all prety common dry malts. Most shops also carry liquid malts at least in Light, Amber, and Dark.
If you want to do an all grain mash it takes a little more effort and time. It's best to start off with a dry or liquid malt brew untill you learn about mashing.

Have Fun.

Until I get better educated in this field I wanna buy what I know is good :) This place is 9.99 for 3.15lbs or 6lbs for $15. Its kinda high but the trouble of making my own this doesn't seem to bad as I can make quite a few 4 gal washes with it if I buy the 6lbs. http://www.northernbrewer.com

I totally agree, get a feel for the craft and the other stuff will come in time. You will learn what works and what wont once you learn what each component is supposed to do.

Lol that's how I see it to buddy.. Want easy simple alcohol :) I ordered 6lbs of malt so once I get it I'll probably start another batch and see if I like it or the cornmeal better.

Grain is if you want flavor/a whiskey--sigar produces no distinct flavor unless you rush the ferment Sadlol

I ordered Rye Malt Syrup.. rye is used in some whiskey recipes and is easy and ready to use.

And I read the grain is more flavor.. I'm gonna give the syrup malt a try since I just have to dump it in and stir :) And I'm gonna see if it's worth the money if not I'm back to cornmeal for now.

I've been in the process of making a single malt "scotch" (since by law its not really Scotch since I'm not doing it there); a single barley malt. My wife is the family beer maker and she cooks up some fine brew. Anyway she goes to a local beer making shop sells all thats necessary at a fair price, so now I just give her a list and sometime during the day its at home! I've gotten 3 different malted barleys and the price range is around $2.50- 3.00/ lb for the 3 types I bought: peat smoked; cherrywood smoked; and 6 row American pale...note this is malted grain, not syrup. BTW, I'm not mixing them' making separate batches

BW, yep saw the movie, more than once. As well I was a bit confused about multiple malts, not sure if I agree with his logic about the malts but everything else seems on the button, so I won't quibble... each batch I'll only use one malt.
