What would they be? I know this will vary depending on what you brew, but am assuming that 2 row (or MO) will be included in most everyone's list. But am curious as to what the other type of grain would be.

Two row and Pilsner.

With 2-row you can make your own crystal and other roasted and even smoked malts.

And some of my recipes call for pilsner malts...so I think I would be covered. Maybe...then I would miss Marris Otter...Damn you and your challenge...

Mo and 2-row. I just got into a bulk grain buy and bought 2 bags 2-row and 1 bag MO. I now wish I would have bought 2 MO and 1 2-row.

If by bulk you mean 'by the sack', my answer is MO and Pils (since they are the only two malts I ever buy in that kind of quantity).

Speciality malts I buy 5 - 10 lbs at a time.

2-row and Pils here also. That's the base for about 90% of the beers I brew.

I splurged recently and bought 4 types:
2 row
Pils
MO
Munich

If I had to buy 2 only, I'd go straight 2 row and pils.
