Does anyone know if the "Place Awarded" was put on all the Philly cover sheets that will advance to the second round? Had a couple checked as advancing to the mini-BOS, but wonder if I should be drinking these looser beers or saving them for the second round.

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.

Ha.  I guess I misread that as changing the style category he was entering the beer in, not changing the actual beer.
Actually . . . both.  :o

And the big question for next year:
Can you just grab a bunch of spots in categories not requiring a lot of detail and then sort out what you're actually going to enter later?

Were you planning to change beers AFTER you ship?
Got lucky this year. There's a drop-off less than a hour from my house. Guess I have until next Wednesday to make the decision?

Re-brewed an American Brown based on the score sheet from a local competition. Scored 36 there, but have high hopes for the new version. Still have to keg and bottle.  :P

Another question. It looks like in the "View/Change/Print Entries" section of the entry form you could change to a totally different beer category. If a beer isn't aging the way you'd like, can you switch to something else after you already declared the style when registering? And if it is aright, do you have up until the last day (March 28th) to make the decision?

Last year I remember there being a link to find the number of entries in each region. Is there something like that this year? Can't seem to find it and it would be nice to know the urgency of signing up.

Thanks Denny. I suppose the trick is knowing how much a "certain amount" is. There's a local competition coming up where I could find out where this stands. Just hate the thought of submitting something that they would consider awful.

Ingredients / Rye
« on: February 04, 2012, 10:03:05 AM »
I brewed a specialty rye beer and have some concern about it having a slick mouthfeel. It’s a 1.075 OG recipe that had 40% rye (30% malted / 10% flaked) and 80 IBU's of American hops. Kind of a Roggenbier meets American IPA experiment. It's tasty, but I’m thinking the mouthfeel might be a distracting problem.

So, here's the question. Is it even a problem? In a BJCP competition, would slick mouthfeel take away points in a rye based beer in the Specialty Beer category? The guidelines describe a Roggenbier as having a medium to full body, but nothing specifically about slickness. Any judges or someone experienced with rye beers have an opinion on how the beer would do in a contest?

Look at it this way. You do not have enough of one of the ingredients you need to make the beer you're planning. If I only had half as much base grain as I needed to brew, I'd either wait or more likely do a half batch. Certainly not brew something inferior. Same thing with yeast. I'd rather have less good beer than lots of sub par beer.

Anyone on the East Coast have theirs yet?

Is there a link where we can edit or at least verify that our recipe submissions have been received?  Or a link where we can view all the recipes that made the second round?

From patience stand point, it would be nice to get results as they became available, but for fairness, releasing them all at the same time makes more sense.

Thanks for the clarification.

Waiting for score sheets is expected, but will there be an on-line source for finding the first three advancing entries from each category? Perhaps something from each location posted as soon as the results are known. Anyone have the web addresses for individual sites or a central location?
