What does "ordinal position in flight" mean on the BJCP competition form I have in front of me?
I can think of two completely different interpretations:
- It's the order that they tried the beer (ie. 2nd means it was the second beer tried)
- It's the place I got (ie. 2nd means 2nd place).
Yes my number is 2 out of 10, but again I have no clue what it means. I've been guessing it's the former though...
Regardless, I was happy with my score for my first competition (29), and, more importantly, I got good feedback on how to improve the beer.
Thanks for the answer, and for the help people provide on the forum. I couldn't have made good beer without you.
