Default 2013 NHC first round results?

Well, today in the mail was the results from the first round of the National Homebrew Competition.

for my IIPA i got a score of 30.5, i knew this batch wasn't as good as the last one which got a 38.5 in a different comp.

and i got a 28 for my Old Ale, basically it was a SnowCap clone (but better ) .

not thinking i am going on to the 2nd round....

any others out there get your results back yet?

CR-

Nope.

What Region were you in? Seattle?

Yet another one of my frustrations with NHC is how they handle scoing roll-outs for the first round...

What they sent out your score sheets but nothing else with them? No ribbons or indications of whether you placed?

The form letter that comes along,

says that a 2nd letter will come after all the 1st round beers have been judged AND that will contain any awards and further instructions if your beer has advanced.

*Shakes head*

I still don't get how giving a brewer an extra week or two to brew a beer for a second round at the very end of June offers any competitive edge, but I don't want to derail your thread any further. Your scores are good, and hopefully the judges provided good feedback for improvement.

They are making it known that they won't post results until after all the regions are judged. I know the Milwaukee judging is next weekend.

I think the minimum score (going by my memory) to advance is 30, but I'm pretty sure that your 30.5 score will be beaten, as the 14C category is very competitive! That's a pretty darn good score and you have reason to be proud of it.
