I helped Troy out around the judging table for the finals, and based on a few samples and the deliberation between the judges, it looked like there were a lot of great beers in the finals. It must have been a tough decision.

Congratulations to the winners.

And shameless plug... If anyone wants to enter beers into another competition, CABA just announced the All About Ales Competition (yes, we're a bit late, but the rules are now up on the site).

Yeah - I suck at typing up feedback. We did the majority of it on paper, so it needs putting in a speadsheet. Also the ones we had on the computer already were written in short form, so needed lengthening. One of the big things that needs to change next year. It's way too time-intensive for a contest that costs us money to put on. About 60% of folks should already have their feedback, and I'm hoping to clear the rest out by the weekend, so thanks for your patience.

Even if the judges aren't certified, you should consider using (or modifying) the BJCP forms. Then you'd just need the judges to fill them out and you could send them off directly (or photocopy to PDF and then email).

http://www.bjcp.org/docs/SCP_BeerScoreSheet.pdf

The form may look a little overwhelming, but the comments aren't always extensive. Most homebrewers probably aren't concerned about every little flavour & aroma the judges detect, they just want some constructive feedback (or an awesome prize!). :wink:

Wife mailed the last few on Thursday - we were waiting for a sponsor to get us their prizes. You were one of the last four recipients.

Any ETA on the remaining feedback? Looking forward to receiving feedback on our entries, as it was the first competition we entered. (is under Devils Creek brewing, and Walter Feddern)
