      Ambrosia in Thornhill has it, and Whole Foods has it by the name "barley malt syrup".

        Any brew your own beer place will have several types, canned or in bulk.

            You can find malt syrup at House of Spice in Kensington, or at most health food stores. I like to eat the syrup with a spoon, mmmn.

            Don't forget that you can also use Dried Malt Extract...this is what I keep on hand for baking and it is much easier to store.
            The results are identical to syrup .
            Both syrup and dried are readily available in ANY home brew shop.

            If you venture into Chinatown, You can also find "malt flour" which is sold in just about every Asian grocery store I've been to...it's not exactly the same as malt extract, but works absolutely just as well in bagels and other baked goods. I bought a 2 lb bag for under $3.00.

              Thanks for the info?

              Lets say a reciped calls for 50 grams (just a random quantity) of barley malt syrup, how would figure out how much of the dried extract to use in its place?

              I went to a place in Hanover on the weekend and came across jars of malt syrup. If you want to send me some kind of way to contact you, I can maybe pick up however many you want of malt syrup.

                Thanks very much, very kind of you! I'm going to try and find some in Toronto this week, I have to believe that I can find somewhere!

                If not, I will certainly take you up on your offer, thanks again.

                What we'll do for better food right!?!

                  All you have to do is find the Wine/Beer brew your own places in your part of Toronto. This is leg work you can do for yourself.
