Thanks, the crystal malt I bought is this:
It says 200 EBC there, so I stand corrected, it isn't Lovibond - it is our european colour measurement. I'm so new to all this that I get confused over american and european differences.

You know I have never had a scottish beer before. We usually drink whiskey here, beer isnt big at all, pubs are really lacking in the tap department with Harp, Smithwicks, Guinness, typical auld heineken, killkenny and murphies, tennents and bass are big sellers.
