Default A list of grains and how they affect the beer

Is there a listing of grains that explains what characteristics they tend to the making of beer. Such as, those grains that offer more body, better head retention, etc. Thanks, Ken

This is a pretty basic list, but it's helpful: http://www.brewery.org/library/Malt101.html
