Hi all,

If you get an error when paying, look at the URL.  If the URL has a "www.", delete the "www." and hit refresh.

Cheers,
Janis

Usually, bottle labels are all that is needed. In this case, the NHC bottle labels have bar codes on them. Do not be alarmed.  8)

You're supposed to be 21 or older to brew beer and you're still in school?  ;D  Good luck!!

Do you have any entries in the KC Biermasters comp next weekend?  Sounds like it would be a good dry run.

Unfortunately, 21 was a long time ago...... but, yeah, still in school:)
attending K-12 (13 years),  College (4.5 years), teaching (21 years). 

I do have entries at KCBM. 3 that I think are pretty decent and 3 that are new recipes I have not brewed/entered before and looking for feedback.

I found it with IE. Logged in and edited my entries on Chrome. Paid by logging in with my android. That was the only combo that would work for me. Only email I got was payment confirmation. (Yes, I checked my junk box)

Haha... Safari didn't work either


Got three entries. :)
But also getting various errors with IE, Chrome and iPhone. Caint pay ma bills.
I can't pay now either, but I also snuck in the back door before I got an email. I'm sure it'll work itself out.

I just got the email, logged in, paid and all went well.

Cheers guys!

FYI I logged into the registration site today and saw my club was no longer listed... Went in to update it and noticed that it was now listing all the sites for stewarding and judging.  I thought awesome they fixed my issue where my entries are going one place and I'm judging in another.  I updated my info and now all my entries are gone... So... It seems they are still working out some bugs... I would hold off on updating that info for the time being...

I did notice that they fixed the Philly session times. Saturday's morning session was scheduled for 2am. That made me laugh.

You're judging the morning session, right?

Hi all,

We have posted an NHC FAQ page to help answer various questions.  Please take a look http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/competitions/national-homebrew-competition/national-homebrew-competition-faq/.  Let me know if you think of any additions we should make to the page.  Thanks!

Looks good, Janis. Maybe add an entry that answers when the first round judging will take place and when the results will be revealed. Other than that, I can't think of anything.

Frank, this gives you an idea of when the judging takes place this year. In the past, some sites will need extra sessions to finish.
http://www.bjcp.org/apps/comp_schedule/competition_schedule.php

Janis compiles the results. The official results are released by the AHA (Janis). You may or may not have your score sheets before then. There should be a cover sheet telling you if you placed, top 3, for second round. The cover sheet may be incomplete, so don't drink all of your beers before the official release by the AHA, you might need them.
