So how many usually make it through the first round?

it'll be around 1000 that make it through, out of around 9000 if all regions are about full.

Wait a minute!  You guys have already gotten notified about the number of beers getting accepted into NHC?

I have heard nothing yet...
patience...

"Congratulations, you have been accepted to enter the 2015 National Homebrew Competition!

We were able to accommodate all applicants for this year’s competition with a maximum of four entries per entrant—the same entry cap as last year’s competition.
PLEASE NOTE:

Entrant notifications are being sent in staggered groups, but if a large number of entrants are attempting to access the software at the same time you may experience slow speeds. If this is the case, you may come back later to finish your entry payment, so long as it is completed by the deadline of 11:00 PM Pacific time on Monday, February 16.

whatever - I'm happy to be in with my 4 again.

looks neato, and I'm glad the AE background came in handy, but this particular Aerospace Engineer will keep using these:


(or maybe GaryG could sell his Club Night wig collection and get Pop & Stop for all the Final Round judges? Thanks man!)

to each their own.  I only care that the beer a system makes is beautiful.  I mean, I am so far from good looking it isn't funny; shouldn't my system be kinda ugly too?   ;D

Yeah I won't be entering this competition next year. What's scary is to quote the coordinator "It gets judged the same no matter what category it is in". Uh, no, how it gets judged is highly dpendant on the style guidelines for that category. We've traded emails back and forth, but that this point I'm going to demand the original category, then contact BJCP to file a complaint.

*sigh*
if it is not in the category you want it, then they owe you $8 IMO.
I agree. And I'm really speechless about this.

well, at least SOMETHING good came out of all this!
;)

Entrants are responsible for putting the beer into the category they desire.  Although somebody may suggest a different category, it should only be a suggestion.

exactly.  It's his entry and he put it where he wanted it.  Now, have I had some who put a beer in the wrong spot and didn't understand it, as it was their first competition?  sure.  I called them and asked if I could move their coconut porter from 12B to 21A.  Once they understood, they were happy I contacted them.

Ross isn't a noob.  IMO an organizer should respect his wishes or refund his money.

I chose two other philly prime New York and ohio

if those three were full, and you missed out on the competition while there were spots available in, say, Saint Louis, would you be upset?  Just making sure...

side note:  just once I'd like to see someone come out with a "The moderately incomplete guide..." or even "The Everything the publisher didn't make me trim..." book.    Sort of like a Lagunitas "Unlimited Release"   ;D

I assume you are referring to Prost's?  I had only a small taste and thought it was very good.
wish there were more good dark lager out there.  I'm about to send majorvices a PM/offer some shipping $$.   ;)

Actually she didn't care for Prost's as much as Grimm Brothers but I don't take too much stock in that. I thought both were great. I have really been enjoying Grimm Brothers lately. I believe their Alt won gold at GABF last year?

I like Little Red Cap too; very good beer.  It's won 2-3 GABF medals.  FWIW, the Dunkel in question, Fearless Youth, is also very tasty and has won at least one that I know of.

If you haven't had it pick up Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel.  You can thank me later. 

+1.  I haven't had that in a quite a while. I remember it being really tasty.

My wife really likes a dunkel brewed here locally so I have tried a couple of examples lately. I will give it a go. Thanks! I have found myself moving away from hoppy, American craft beer which I never thought would happen. The German in me must be coming out as I get older ;)
