Just stumbled upon this thread. Airborneguy (and everyone else that got caught up in this ridiculous excuse of a competition) I am sorry you had to deal with this. However, I am literally crying and almost pissed my pants from laughing so hard, particularly at Art's actual emails. You just can't make this stuff up.

Btw I just triple checked my spelling and grammar - I'm super paranoid now. Reminds me a bit of the stuff over at DamnYouAutocorrect.com

Don't worry, we don't pick on you for grammar or spelling unless you've earned it.

I knew I was setting myself up for this sort of treatment. Oh well.

Personally, I'm done with all contests. I entered a local contest that in the past had been a BJCP/AHA contest. Not so this year. I could have wiped my ass with the scoresheets and gotten better feedback. 2 of 3 judges assigned scores with a minimum of comments (1 wrote one sentence on the whole sheet, the other didn't write anything but a score). The third judge was a professional brewer, so his feedback was good.

Then I follow it up with this abortion of a contest. I'm out $20 for shipping and three beers. And I'm not holding my breath I'm going to get score sheets at all, and I am CERTAIN they will be worthless if I do.

In the end, I brew what I like - and the only person that has to judge my beer is me. I get better feedback from a couple of fellow homebrewers that I work with than either contest at this point.

I just went to that forum, and it appears your post is gone. Did you delete it? Or was there too much drama, so they deleted it?

Assuming that was your post

I've entered the Sam Adams "Longshot" competition a few times and a BJCP sanctioned state fair competition this past year. Each time the feedback I received was similar to what you describe.

At the same time, I feel that receiving feedback relative to a larger audience (like the Sam Adams one) is really valuable, even if some of the score sheets seemed like they were "phoned in." I enjoy my brews (and actually won my category -- 23 -- at the state fair event mentioned) but unbiased feedback is always a way to force us to get better at our craft.

I get rave reviews from my friends, but then again, they're getting free beer.

They deleted it. I guess a guy named BrewBum is a mod, took it all personal.
