29 isn't horrible for a first, right? I just hope I don't get a 12

I wouldn't worry about it...they usually set 13 as the lowest score judges can give!  ;)

Right, usually LOL! You haven't tried my bottle conditioned wiener quad.

12 might be a little ambitious for a weiner quad  :D    At least you'd know what food to pair it with. Or maybe blend it with a mustard and relish wit !  I needed a good laugh

Would that go in spice beer for the mustard, or smoked beer for the wiener?

Good to know. The trouble is that the DMS and oxidation combine to make it more of a corndog on a stick.

No, not appropriate for the wiener quad. I save diacetyl boost for my Orville Roggenbocker

My first competition was the 2013 aha nhc.  I got a 41 in round 1 for my irish red.  Did not advance to round 2. But I was very happy with the score.  Then I entered the orange county fair. Didn't do too hot there because I entered by what was ready not by my best.  Then I entered the oc fest of ales. Took first in English ale with my ESB. Looking forward to the nhc.  I'm hoping to enter an irish red,  esb, agave wheat, strawberry blonde,  and a sage IPA.

I don't always shoot beer out my nose, but when I do I prefer homebrew.

That was a good one, Jim :)

At 1 minute after midnight I got my application for NHC in. I'll bet about 200 people beat me to it in that minute...

I put in for 3 entries at Seattle.

Geez...at least I waited until 8am.  ;D

Listed for the max 6 entries...all of them award winners (including 2 this last weekend at the Upper Mississippi Mashout).

I just entered my first contest.
I placed third in the Porter catagory.
There were only nine entries in the catagory, but I figure at least I'm in the top third. I'm feeling pretty good about it, it was the first time I brewed the recipe, so it's not something I have been trying to perfect.
Looking forward to seeing the score sheet.
