That's what I was referring to. I was a point away from being eligible to move on to the finals. Not that I'd hold my breath with only a 30. But you could have the best bear in a category, but if all the beers were off and the best was only a 29, then nobody advances.

Anyone else in the Great Lakes Region NOT get their certificates back yet?? I got my scoresheets back the week after the 1st Round, but no certs. Not that they mean much, just more wall decor I suppose.

FWIW, I should be getting a Gold cert and 2 Silvers.

You never know. It's a whole new ball game in the second round. A 30 could possibly do much better in the finals. The whole thing is somewhat of a crap shoot. Overall, IMO the quality of the BJCP judging is excellent and in the long run it all seems to work out fairly, but I've also entered the same beer in multiple competitions and the range was from Best of Show to zilch. The beer was all from the same batch and the competitions were all held at about the same time. In all, it was six major competitions (including 1st round NHC) and the final tally was one BOS, three golds, one silver and one bronze. That will probably never happen again with any beer I brew.

I'm in the East Region and I just got mine last week. I'm sure they will arrive at your door very soon. BTW, they do mean much! One cannot have too much bling. Everyone knows that!

If it makes you feel any better, my 37.5, 32, 31.5 didn't make it to the next round.

Congrats to all who placed or won their categories!

I am just a noob and got lucky with my stout. I created the recipe as a sweet stout but missed my mash temps so it came out tasting like a dry stout. I entered it as a sweet stout due to the recipe and it scored 25, but I got a bronze certificate and I am happy.

I entered it in another comp as a dry stout and scored a 35! Either way I am gonna keep on brewing!

Good luck to all of you who have moved on to round 2!

my 40 got third and my 35 took first. I wish I could have tasted the others in the BOS flights.

That makes me feel better. My 48.5 first round mead didn't place in the top three in the second round. The one that won, didn't place in the top three in the first. Oh, well.

The key to winning is entering many brews. I always admired my brother's success with women. He pointed out that it wasn't that he had particular skill but that he went up to bat so much more than I did. I feared failure and he didn't. Good life lesson.
