What is a good sustitue for Amber Malt?  My homebrew store never has it, but I like the character it gives.

that is a very distinct taste and I don't believe there is any close substitute.  I would just put together an order from an online shop that has it if you like it.

A lesser amount of brown, biscuit or victory is about the closest I think you can come.
