Yep 2 first round 3 second round... so if it's a beer you are not going to rebrew for the second round better bottle off 5 bottles.

Maybe a couple extra in case something happens and you get an email 2 days before the comp saying your bottle broke "in transit"  >:(

That is true, as the bottles are usually stored in a working brewery cold room, that can be crowded before you put an extra 1500 bottles in there. One guy in our club had to send some in 2 years back due to an accident at the brewery.

Have a few extra, so that you can drink after first round when you get your scoresheet, and one for after second round if it advances.

All extras could also be sent to me... so maybe go ahead and do 9 of each.

It's always a good idea to reserve a bottle to taste as you read your comments after the comp.

If it helps at all, we've had ~800 entrants register today in a very leisurely way.  We expect about 3X that amount total for the competition by the end of the week.  I'm really happy about how well this has gone so far.

Cheers,
Janis

how's the interest level been the rest of the week?  I assume we've blasted through previous records for most entrants?

Hi Michael,

The response has been fairly steady all week.  Typically we see a bump in entries submitted in the area of last year's conference, and another bump from the areas around where this year's conference will be held, and that is holding true this year as well.  Apart from that there's not much I can say.

Cheers,
Janis

Wonder what the grand totals were.  It will be interesting to see the numbers when they come out.

Should we kill time with speculation? My bet is everyone who registered will get to enter up to 6 beers. With the 40-60 entry folks limited, it will open it up a bit. Will make Ninkasi more competitive too I would think.

Entry limit was 15 last year and there weren't too many people that got more than 5-6 entries into the 2nd round.

I think its great there will be real data on how many people/entries are requested, should help for future planning.

True. I'm no authority on the subject for certain. I was more less referring back to when there were repeat winners. I've heard Gordon say that he used to enter like 40+. I'm not questioning his ability at all. But to me it seems obvious that the less entries people can submit, the harder it will be to win Ninkasi
