The recipe at the ATK website requires registration, but I found it elsewhere:


The recipes says the the malt powder is optional, so if you don't have it, you don't need to find a substitute.

You can use a small- very small - as a substitute. If you're having trouble finding barley malt powder, home brew stores are an excellent and inexpensive source.
