Still toying with the wording of a beer going into 23. My poor search skills can't locate this answer. When is the last day that you can edit your entries.
Hi,

March 11th.  Good luck!

Cheers,

Homebrew Competitions / Re: NHC first round judging?

Have the judging dates for each of the sites been announced yet?  If so, where can I find them?

Hi WV Brewer,

The competitions are all registered with the BJCP, and can be found on the BJCP Competition Calendar.  The AHA Calendar also lists the judging locations and dates, since it is a direct RSS-feed from the BJCP web site.

Cheers,
Janis

Hi Mac,

As with any competition that you have entered and also are volunteering to judge, you may not judge or steward any category in which you have an entry.

In the Final Round, a large number of BJCP-certified judges attend the conference, and we do not have very many problems getting enough highly qualified judges to volunteer.

Cheers,
Janis

Hi,

We encourage everyone to get involved with the competition; however, the judge/steward registration will not be available until next week at the earliest.  When entrants are randomly placed in the competitions, they will be able to volunteer by logging into their account.  If you are not an entrant, or if you wish to volunteer in a competition other than the one in which you are entered, the separate Judge/Steward registration form will be available next week as well.  Thanks!

Cheers,
Janis

Hi Jaftak22,

If you filled out the application form, then we will treat your application the same as any other application.  There is no prerequisite for getting into the competition, except that you need to apply first.  Although, I should say that volunteers (staff, judges, and stewards) who helped make the 2014 NHC a success, will be placed in their primary judge centers before the rest of the applicants are randomly selected.  Good luck!

Cheers,
Janis

Hi all,

The glitch was fixed early this morning.  One thing to keep in mind is that you can log in to the application form 24/7, all week to edit your application.  Editing must be done by the end of February 8th.

Cheers,
Janis

Hi Jim,

Also, keep in mind that the BJCP Style Guidelines have been changed several times since 2000 (2004, 2008, 2014), so it's possible that the category was accepting of fruit-added versions of that beer style in 1995.

Good luck in the competition!

Cheers,
Janis

Right.  And Austin looks like it will be March 13-15, 2015.  I will register this competition on Monday, 12/22/2014.

Hi all,

No, there are no specific ship dates for each competition.  All entries are due at the same time.  Sorry.  If you knew what a monumental task it is to put this whole thing together, you would understand.  Possibly.

Cheers,

most of the regions and dates are on the BJCP calendar, just fyi.

bummer no KC region, but they deserve a break.  Also sucks Easter is in the middle there and so many regions are on one weekend, but I suspect there's nothing else that could be done - the spring gets awfully busy with events/comps.  Still, those 4/10 regions are going to have to store entries for 5 weeks or so before they ever judge them.   :-\

Hi Michael,

Yeah, the competition dates for 2015 are March 13 to April 12, 2015.  Easter (4/5) and also the Craft Brewers Conference in Portland (4/13-18) kind of hurt the schedule a bit, but there isn't anything I can do about that.  I have 2 more competitions to register; Austin, TX and Saint Louis, MO.  I don't have dates or shipping/judging info for either right now.

Cheers,
Janis

Hi Denny,

Yes, we are all getting spammed with this.  Duncan thinks they are taking the addresses from the AHA GC page.

It can't be too soon to start planning yet? What are you entering this year. For me, I got a 40 (38/42) on my Scottish so I'm going for it again. The National level judge picked up oxidation and gave it a 42. The rank pending said it was lacking peat earth. So I'm going to change one thing. I'm bottle conditioning instead of bottling off the keg. Fingers crossed.

Then I'm cheating. Entering my peat earth lacking Scott as a Northern English Brown since my wife can't tell it apart from New Castle Brown. Then I'm doing one with more hops to enter as a Special Bitter.

Depending on how my NW Wild turns out I might enter it as am American Mixed Fermentation 28b in new guidelines, if they decide to use them this year.

So 3 maybe 4 entries planned.

Hi Jim,

The proposed 2014 BJCP Style Guidelines will not be finalized soon enough to use in the 2015 National Homebrew Competition (NHC).  We will use the 2008 BJCP Style Guidelines for the upcoming 2015 NHC, and we will transition to the new BJCP guidelines for the 2016 NHC.

Cheers,
Janis

Hi,

If you had logged in to the First Round database after all competitions were done, you could have downloaded the PDF letter and PDF certificates from your record.  Entrants who placed in the First Round would find the Instructions for Entering the Final Round on pages 2 and 3 of the letter.  Since you did not do that, please use the same username and same password to log into http://www.brewingcompetition.com/FINAL/.

Note: you must NOT be logged in to the First Round database when you log in to the Final Round database. 

An e-mail is being sent to all First Round entrants with winning entries today.

Cheers,
Janis
