Homebrew Competitions / Re: NHCompetition Registration is Open

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,
Janis

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.

Cheers,

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

I wonder what it would take to get the AHA to put the names of the beers in the winners' lists.  Homebrewers are pretty creative and clever with names and I for one would enjoy seeing this.
Hi Jeffy,

Don't hold your breath for this.  That creativity has it's unprintable side to it, so we specifically don't include the brew names.

Cheers,
Janis

Hey, we're all adults, in a way.
Jeffy,
Seriously, the names wouldn't be half as funny, if that were the case.   ;)
Cheers,

Janis,
How about a ball park on when the other judge centers results will be posted. I'm afraid we'll all wear out our refresh buttons LOL
Hi Jim,

It's going to take a lot longer if I have to keep answering Forum posts and e-mails asking me about this.  As of this afternoon there are 7 sets of results posted.  I'm stuck on one competition today, so that may be all that gets posted tomorrow.  I was hoping to get all of them posted this week.

Cheers,
Janis

Hi Joe Sr.,

Chicago has some judging left to do, so they will probably be the last results posted.  Sorry.
