BTW, AnOldUR, you might have a bottle of my winning beer left in your fridge, if you haven't drunk it yet, I sent two of them to you...

Don't know if it's good or bad, or just part of my OCD, but I have this fear of loosing stuff that makes me hoard certain things. That bottle keeps tempting me from the door of the kitchen fridge. The first one was so good that I keep putting off drinking the second because I don’t want it to be gone. The anticipation is almost as rewarding as the real thing.

Here's another:

Northeast Region
Category 26: Other Mead

Max Score: 48.5 | Min Score: 24 | Avg Score: 31.6 | # of Entries: 10
1 26c Art Steinmetz of Morristown, NJ
2 26c Michael Fairbrother of Londonderry, NH, Brew Free or Die
3 26c Edward Walkowski of Dalton, PA, SAAZ (Scranton Area Amateur Zymologists)

I'm getting a bit excited here. My 48.5 first round score was the best score nationally of any mead, and of all entries, period. (don't quote me on the last fact, I may have missed something).

Thanks for the good wishes. Breaking a leg, I'm not worried about. Breaking a bottle in shipping? That terrifies me.

I almost feel obligated to put an apology in the box with my entries. I get visions of a lot of cursing as they try to penetrate the bubble-fortress around each bottle.

Then again I've had some beer shipped to me and when I opened it was shocked there was no breakage. Just loose (intact) bottles and little bubble-wrap.

Awesome score art.

Hey, waddyaknow. I just got a bronze certificate in the mail for my Saison! That makes me feel better. But for all I know, I was one of three saisons in my region.

edit: Just checked the NHC site and realized that everyone in a certain score range got a bronze certificate. I was only a point away from Silver and qualifying to go on the the next round. Oh well, it's nice that it scored as well as it did when they nicked me for oxidation.
