Come to think of it, if I was a Steward, I could bug all of those guys. Maybe that's what I'll do next time.

Too bad they cant call whoever was 4th place and tell them they're in.
Probably it was 3rd place but didnt score 30pts? But thats hard to imagine. I dont think I would forward a 29 to best of show. Whats the point?Hopefully the San Diego results are released by close of business, otherwise I don't see them released before Monday. It's been almost 2 weeks since the end of the competition, kind of ridiculous...
I'm wondering if the 3rd place disqualification in category had something to do with the delay in verification. Wonder what that's all about...
I'm guessing that wasn't it, the other sites all stated when that was the case. I'm guessing that it was a beer entered at more than one site, perhaps with flip flopped brewer/co-brewer?
Some on Reddit said they and their co-brewer accidentally entered the same beer taking both 2nd and 3rd. Janis disqualified one. Of course... It's the Internet.
Always good to hear positive feedback! I'm a recently appointed Associate Exam Director and graded about 110 individual exams last year. It's a lot of work but it's rewarding. We do take it very seriously and try not to cheat anybody out of points. It's been fun seeing all the new judges over the past few years at competitions and advancing through the ranks! I judge around 17-18 competitions/year and it's been great seeing the number of National and higher judges increase by over 100%. It seems that nearly every table has a National or higher judge these days.
I think that depends on where you are judging since the BJCP tends to have very strong representation in certain areas and much weaker representation in others. In AZ, we only have 1 master and 6 national. Of those seven higher ranking judges, we might get 3-4 of them to show up on a good day. Two of them are pretty much retired from judging. Now when I've traveled to San Diego or even Denver to judge, it's a much different story.
Still need more certified and up judges. At STL NHC 1st round comp, I had 5 entries with 11 total scoresheets. Of the 11 scoresheets that were returned, one was graded by a certified and one by a national judge. The other 9 were graded by recognized and novice judges.
I hope I'm rich enough to sue people someday.
Get a lawyer who works on contingency. You don't need to be rich to sue, you just need to sue someone rich.
You could try making a Burton Union type device.
What if it needs adjusted? Hasn't a lot of the conversion taken place by 15 min? I recently started checking mine at 10-15 like you all say and it has been OK. I just wonder what to do if it's not. I'm usually about 30 in by the time it's cool and checked so I figured it's too late to do anything other than take a note for next time.
