General Homebrew Discussion / Re: BJCP Entrance Exam is now available
« on: April 03, 2012, 07:37:12 AM »
I just took the sample exam and only got 2 wrong ( one of the wrong answers was regarding if a judge could be certified without points ). 

Hmmm...maybe I should start studying and see if I can get at least provisional status for next year's 1st round.  My big concern would be the tasting exam...I really have a $hitty palate.

For those who have taken the tours in previous years, does the end time represent when the bus returns to the hotel, or when you leave the last brewery?

I'm thinking about booking a brewery tour on Wednesday, but I want to make sure I'm back to catch the bus to the Brewing Network Anniversary party.

I'm going to Disney this month, but I'm treating that as something I need to get out of the way so NHC can get here sooner...terrible I know.

I'll be judging for the Philly region all day tomorrow.  :)

Just remember..I VOTED FOR YOU   ;)

I know results aren't posted until everyone is done.
Is this correct? I thought that last year some results were released from the judging sites as they became available. That it was only the official AHA website that didn't post until all were in.

It depended on the region.  The PNW region got there's out within a couple days, other not so quick. 

I'm wondering if anything was said to the organizers to hold back scoresheets since it could possibly give some and advantage over other ( i.e. more time to rebrew, etc ).

Again, I don't know...just speculating.

Homebrew Competitions / NHC 1st Round Judging - Philadelphia Region
« on: March 30, 2012, 10:11:20 AM »
I was looking at the AHA Competition calendar and saw that the Philly region was doing 1st round judging today.  Can anyone confirm that?

I don't want to open that whole can of worms from last year, but it's nice to know the region I sent to is on the ball.  I know results aren't posted until everyone is done.

I was worried because I waited until closer to the deadline so they wouldn't be there too early.  But then it was 85+ degrees in the Northeast when I wanted to ship them.  The weather cooled a bit and I sent them...they got there the day before the deadline.

Good luck to all ( especially me  ;) )

Got mine!
If I win, everyone on the board gets a round on me!

Great...I'll take mine in Germany.  Where should I pick up my plane ticket?   ;D

Yeah, but if I won I wouldn't need to come to work anymore...what a tragedy!

I was going to renew my AHA subscription today, but now I think I'll use that money to buy lottery tickets...thanks Bluesman  ;)

Up here in the Northeast, especially around the cities, it's more along the lines of hand signals  ;D

I just had to repost my last year's baseball thread posting:

Not feeling it with the team this year though...but we shall see. 

I also have a AA team (NH Fisher Cats - Toronto) one mile from my office, and we usually make a couple games in Portland, ME ( Seadogs - Red Sox AA team ).   Good times!

And a 1/2" ID vinyl tube fits over the big port of the orange carboy caps perfectly to make a blow off tube.

I use milk crates to carry mine around.  It also prevents that sucking back action when I have an airlock attached.
