If your score is higher than a 30, then keep 3 bottles aside until the NHC releases all the results.
Interesting - well for anyone that entered in St. Paul your scoresheets will indicate if you placed or not as the judges and us stewards were told to make sure that is filled out after Mini BOS. The database was updated based off of the placement indicated on the scoresheets.

yes, you're right. I should have mentioned that as well. With my situation last year since it was a lager, rebrewing was not an option. I have 2 entries this year that would need a rebrew it they make it through...a IIPA and a dark mild. The mild is not problem since I can bang that out in about 10 days. The IIPA would probably need to be rebrewed soon. But who has the time

I guess it depends on who's running the show. I know there were a couple regions last year that didn't indicate on the coversheet, but there were others that did.

Yea, for sure. You'd think all the judging centers would have specific instructions and there would be more consistency, but maybe there was and no one listened. Who knows...

Consistency from AHA/NHC? Unpossible!

My American Brown was sent to Atlanta. I expect that it will get middling scores. It was good, but not great in my opinion (my girlfriend, for whom it was really brewed, disagrees).

It was a modification of a previous batch's recipe to move it into style guidelines, and I honestly believe that it lost key flavor just to get it lighter in color. I didn't personally notice any flaws in it (but hey, I'm no certified judge), however I just don't think it's flavorful enough to advance past what I'm sure is pretty stiff competition.

If it gets above 30, I will be satisfied.

Got my scores back for the two beers I entered. My California Common only scored a 28 but that's ok. First time brewing that style. Judges comments were recipe driven...no brewing flaws. But my Brown Porter scored a 41.5!! I don't know if it placed or not. What are the chances that it might advance?

It at the least likely made it a mini-BOS if the category was large enough. If it was a single flight, I would say your odds of placing are very high.
