All I can do now is wait to see what the damages are.

I got my score sheets today!

Oddly, I was at a Homebrew Club meeting the other day and sampling some beers, the one guy tasted my IIPA and remembered judging it. I explained that I should have entered it as a Barleywine, everyone tasting it completely agreed including the judge. It did so poorly, far worse than the other beers I entered scoring only a 13.5.

At any rate, I'm somewhat pleased with my scores and notes, they were pretty much where I thought they'd be so I'm confident in my judgment of my own beers. I'm not too familiar with what a "good" score is on these except for the little box at the bottom left corner of the score sheet. I scored a 26.5, 28 and 30.5 on the other beers. Apparently that's "good" and "very good", but I'm not sure how it stacks up against others in homebrew contests.

At any rate, how did everyone do? The feedback is wonderful on here and despite the judging talent being wildly different, a lot of the same things were said about my beers.

I got my scores today. I entered an India Black ale and both judges scored it a 34. Considering it is my first competition entry, I'm pretty pleased.

One of the judges really put the effort into the comments, which I find extremely useful.

I brewed a tweaked all-grain version of Biermuncher's Jalapeño Cream Ale (21A) and it scored a 37 winning silver in the Vegetable/Spice Category. I also entered my all-grain recipe of an aged Old Ale (19A) that scored a 42.5 winning Gold in the Strong Ale Category. It was a good day :-)
