Default Creamy Malt?

I'm looking for a suggestion on what malt would provide a creamy flavor. Can any one suggest a malt I could use?

maris otter can have a sweet smooth english flavor to it
munich is very creamy IMO
flaked oats , flaked wheat, torrified wheat all give rich creamy mouthfeel

Lactose, but it's not a malt. Also, higher mash temps.

Some flaked oats might get you what your looking for. I get a crreamy, smooth mouthfeel and flavor from those on the beers I use them in. Maybe up to 1.5# for your beer for some creamyness and mouthfeel

I would add to flaked oats, or flaked barley, depending on your recipe. You'll have to use that in conjuntion with your regular base malt, but it should give you a really nice mouthfeel. Oats are more silky/creamy and barley is more think, syrupy type feel.

I think you're missing out rice or corn, otherwise it's something else

unless you mean cream as in "creamy" in which case disregard my comment

I add 1/2 lbs of lactose to my cream/milk stout.

I guess what I'm really asking is, the main difference between using lactose and/or malt to create a creamy taste profile?
