Thanks for the tidbit about the runner up best of show. I got my score sheets today and while I think the BW was legit, the Flander's Red was a bit of a gimme. Only 5 beers in the sour ale category and a 30 score. I sent both off to NHC before I had the results so hopefully at least the BW doesn't get slaughtered.

You must be brewing quite a few sours, huh? That 30 is probably a 40 at any other comp. The scores were low across the board. My gold was only a 36.

My silver in English Ales was a 35. Not sure how many entries there were, it was a combined category.

Conga rats to you all

With a title like this, hey...

How old can a beer be and still be entered in a sanctioned competition? I'm thinking of entering Texas Bluebonnet in 2013.

When do I start counting the age? I have a beer in secondary now that is not considered mature for 4-6 months, according to the recipe. Can I count age starting 6 months from the day I brewed it? Does age start the day I bottle?

Competitions don't care about the age, just how tasty and close to style the beer is. That Flanders Red I entered was close to 2 years old but I've also entered beer that were less than a month old.
