@kcbiermeisters will be live tweeting the results.
Thanks Amanda...I just followed.  Of course I'm going to be at a brewfest on Saturday in Portsmouth, NH so there may be some drunken retweets. :)

Myles (the better half and tweeter of the Bier Miesters) loves retweets. Especially drunk ones! ;D Personally, I'm not sure I understand the Twitter, but whatever works to get the information out!

congrats on the cider gold.  Briefly thought I had you beat.  ;)
Hope to see some of your cider at NHC.

Amanda is quite inebriated right now but she did an amazing job on this comp.  I recommend this competition to anyone.

cheers--

I blame whatever tasty beverage you gave me on my quick trip to drunk town. I hope everyone liked my drunken speech! :)

Do I need to be concerned about any of the other meads you gave me??

Inebriated or not.... I would second the fact that it is a great comp.  As someone who is located 150-300 miles from any of the "major" competitions,  making it unlikely that I can ever attend, I really appreciate the live results, quick turnaround of results and information, etc.  The use of facebook, twitter, forums, etc. to communicate is appreciated (by others, too, I am sure) when we can't be there in person.  Thanks for running a great competition.

Thanks!  Two of my four entries to NHC are going to be ciders.

Any chance that speech made it to Youtube?  ;)

Edit:  Wow Michael - awesome job on your entries.  Did someone help you carry all your medals out? Taking gold in IPA and 3 out of the 6 cider/perry medals.  Impressive.  Good luck at NHC...maybe we'll go head-to-head again.

Got my score sheets today.  Very pleased with the feedback.

Also pleased with a 43 and mini best of show. Nice for my first comp.

The other two entries were not quite there, but the feedback is good.

Cool.  Where did you see the scores with out the sheets?  On-line?

The stout is going to the NHC, I have to decide on the others.  My old ale was not quite to style, so I have to figure out if it can go in another category maybe.  And I'll tap the other batch of dubbel to see how it compares.

Yeah, the day after the comp the scores were posted on your entry page next to your entries and after that the home page had all the results for each category and the winners. Now I'm awaiting the Drunk Monk results being judged next weekend.

Good luck on the stout, I passed this year on the NHC, last year's debacle kind of put me off and I really couldn't wrap my head around my entries and getting motivated. I figured I would see how this year's comp played out and jump in again next year. From what I've read it appears a lot of the changes really went through well this year which is a great thing!

Amanda, will this competition be about the same time (Feb 21-ish) in 2015?  I'm trying to plan my competition brewing schedule for next year.

Thanks!

Did you just get a job translating English to English?  ;D

Thanks...looking forward to going up against you in the cider categories again.  Just so you know, I just got 2 golds and Cider Maker of the Year in a local comp...so bring it!  ;) (you know, that phrase just isn't me )
