Herro,
   If you were to ask me personally,...  I would say "pick a grain,.... any grain".   But it sounds like you are new in the field, so you might start by using the search function and do a little research.
  Many have started with PF TEK.  I have never spent time with BRF so you might wait for another recommendation, or start reading and gearing up now.

People experience success with the PF TEK. Try it and you will be able to answer your own question. The best substrate is the one that works for you consistently.

The other two have pretty much hit it on the head.  Once you're up and running you can decide.  GL!

Herro,
  If you are shopping at Walmart for your goodies you have a world of selections,....  WBS, Millet, Br. Rice, Popcorn, Barley, and Oats.
  But, if you were taking the advice of the majority, you would be sticking with the BRF.
  Your choice once again.

Yeah I havn't ventured into the grains, but I have seen the good results from popcorn, and lots of different seeds from posters here on the forums.  I may go there one day, but I'm content with my BRF cakes!

Herro,
  You have a few options,.. 
 1) Go to the fungifun.org home page and hit the shopping link
 2) Buy a coffee grinder, some brown rice and make you own
 3) Hit E-Bay or a health food store
 
  Dude,...  Think outside of the box.  There are always options and ways to accomplish what you want to do.  Remember the first time you smoked pot?  You found a way to get that done,....  This is easier.  It's Legal!

Malabar is right. Use a little common sense and the search function that is available to you on this site. I personally started out with the PF TEK using BRF. I bought a bag of brown rice and a coffee grinder at the grocery store.and the verm was purchased at Wal-Mart. No real big mysteries to it.
