malt vinegar substitute

I read the ingredients and saw malt vinegar was one of them, which from what I know, its is not vegan. If you could tell me what is another type of vinegar that I can use? It would be great, thank you.

RE: malt vinegar substitute

Sorry for the confusion, I use distilled vinegar when baking these cupcakes. Have updated the recipe for future reference :)
