General Homebrew Discussion / Re: AHA First Round
« on: May 04, 2011, 10:22:56 PM »
If you wanted to re-brew, you have had every opportunity to do so since the competition began, or even before that.

you are joking... right?  what if I entered 5 beers, or 15, or 50?  How am I to know which made it through the gauntlet and which fell by the wayside?  I am still waiting for results from you or in the mail, and am WAY under a reasonable timeframe to rebrew a great beer in time to ship for the final round. 

I would hate to have your job right now, with, literally, hundreds of brewers waiting and grumbling at you every day.

What I don't understand is why you can't release the results when you get them.  There is not a fairness issue - you either moved ahead in your region, or you did not.  Since you could only enter one region this year, there is no advantage or disadvantage to knowing the results as soon as possible.  You can develop your database and entry numbers and such after the fact - most just want to know if they made it or not.

This is where I have a problem with the current "release" schedule...

You have your results and can prepare for the second round.  I am still waiting.  There is no reason to hold all results until all regions are recieved and then posted - fairness is not an argument, as demonstrated here.  >:(

release the Kraken!

Right now they are getting spread between the compost heap and the garden.  The deer have been caught hanging around more lately...

FWIW, the barley crusher default factory setting is supposed to be .039"
