Waiting for score sheets is expected, but will there be an on-line source for finding the first three advancing entries from each category? Perhaps something from each location posted as soon as the results are known. Anyone have the web addresses for individual sites or a central location?
You will get results from the competition two ways: on the web site http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/competitions/national-homebrew-competition/winners
and through the mail. The first two NHC competitions took place this weekend; one finished and the other needs more time. The 9 competitions in the U.S. must be completed by April 25th. The ALES Home Brew Open competition tales place April 11-16. All competitions must return their databases to me for processing before any results will be posted on the web site.
Each competition's site director will send out score sheet results within one to two weeks of the completion of their competition. If your competition started and finished early in the April 1-25 time frame, you may get your results by mail sooner than later. The web results will be posted by the first week of May at the latest.
If you have an entry that placed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in the First Round competition, you will be notified by mail from the AHA about how to submit your entries to the Final Round. That mailing will go out around the second week of May. The Final Round entry due date can be found on the main NHC web page, and you will need 3 bottles. The AHA will send the bottle labels to use for the Final Round.
If you have further questions about the NHC you can e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Good luck in the competition!
