Default Is there a list of which grain does what?

I've been doing extract brewing for a few months now and really want to step it up to all grain brewing. Is there a list of different grains and what they taste like and/or do for the beer? I literally have no idea what the main differences are.

Thanks!

As a matter of fact there is one on the HBT wiki.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/wiki/index.php/Malts_Chart

That will tell you the color, flavors, potential, yield, and whether or not it needs to be mashed.

Good luck

I've used BeerSmith for a couple years... love it! Especially now that there's a Linux beta.

Brew Target is pretty dang good too... also free and open-source

Had a bit of deja-vu. Realized that I had posted in an identical thread about 2 weeks ago:
