    Re: Help with Scottish English

    ...members worldwide and others marketing pure, unadulterated malt from the bottle, the secret is open to all. Now, there should be no conflict between ale and whiskey. After all, they're twins at birth. (While we're looking at) (a) malt whiskey (is) that it's (a or ehm?) distilled ale. Because, (no idea)-working brewers in Scotland are actually employed by distilleries...

    I hope someone is going to correct this. I'm sure I hear "while we're looking at" there, but it doesn't make sense.

    PS: "What we're looking at in" maybe? But there's no "in" there and it still doesn't sound right.

    Re: Help with Scottish English

    My best guess is:

    Now with 20,000 members worldwide, and others marketing pure, unadulterated malt from the bottle, the secret is open to all. Now there should be no conflict between ale and whiskey. After all, they are twins at birth. When we are looking at malt whiskey, is that, it's a distilled ale because most working brewers in Scotland are actually employed by distilleries, rather than breweries, and the ale they produce from malted barley and water is fermented, a bit like the stuff you would drink in the pub, but there are other slight differences and variances, no hops in it, for example, and the resulting ale that is produced is then distilled, and that's what gives you your malt whiskey.

    The wording of the "when we are looking at" sentence is a bit like he changed his train of thought mid-sentence. It is not gramatically correct, but it is what I am hearing.

    Hope that helps,

    Kristin

    Thanks! I thought he must have changed his mind about his sentence there...

    And it was "most working"! I would never have guessed!

    He says 'err most', which might be why.
