This is just a reminder that FedEx does NOT deliver to Silver Gulch in Fox, Alaska.

If you wish your entry to arrive at the proper destination some other private carrier (e.g. UPS, DHL etc.) must be used.

Please note that I have just become aware that FedEx no longer delivers to Fox which is the location of the competition.

Entries shipped via FedEx will end up sitting in a warehouse near the airport in Fairbanks.

Such entries will not be received and, therefore, will not be entered into the competition.

Please do NOT ship your entries via FedEx!

Homebrew Competitions / Re: High Fill, is this a thing?
« on: May 31, 2014, 09:19:28 PM »
The first thing a judge does prior to opening the bottle is look at the fill level (low or high) and look for any obvious signs of infection. This section is not scored.

Noting a high or low fill level may point to potential problems which may or may not be realized. If there was a problem then it would be noted in elsewhere on the scoresheet.

A high fill level can result in under carbonated beer. If there was no comment regarding low carbonation or mouthfeel problems then the high fill likely did not affect the beer in question.

My guess is that judge wrote down that comment prior to actually tasting the beer.

Admittedly further explanation should have been given or that comment simply removed.

Is there any chance there will be a drop off location in juneau like they do for the haines competition.

Probably not.

You have to realize the running of this competition is by a committee of two (i.e. my wife and me). Our money and efforts are better spent on catering the judging, purchasing medals, tote bags, hot sauce, glasses etc. and shipping of the prize packages. Plus, of course, making up any short-fall in entry fees to cover the cash prize.

Also it would kind of kind of negate a special offer we have to encourage judges. We allow them to hand deliver their entries and thereby save of shipping costs. Of course, we do require them to pre-register the entries so all the paperwork is ready prior to the event.

This our 18th year of the competition and our focus right now is rebuilding our base of qualified judges after several have moved away.

The shipping costs can be fairly expensive.

We try to give entrants a nice prize package just for entering to somewhat help offset the costs.

A lot people enter with friends and split the costs which can make the shipping costs a bit more reasonable.
