In #398, Dale Veeneman inquires about authentic scottish ale.

I've been able to come close to scottish ale using Steinbart's extract,
which (I have been told by Steinbart clerks) comes from Scotland in
giant drums. They have a "tartan ale" extract which you could try.
The only complaint I have about their extract syrups is that they end up
throwing a bodacious chill haze. But in a darker ale, this won't matter.

Steinbart's address is:

F. H. Steinbart Co.
602 SE Salmon
Portland, OR 97214

If you use the Wyeast Irish (#1084) liquid yeast culture, the attenuation
will go further, and the end product will be less sweet.
