Yes we all get emailed our results. I believe it may take a few days while the head judge rechecks everything before sending results. The feedback comments where quite long for some entries I noticed. So how much of that feedback we get I’m not sure yet. That would be a lot of work for someone to type all the feedback into the system. But I think they aim to get all the judges comments to us.
Wow!! Awesome, ok, thanks for the info!!! Hope next time I'll be able to go!!

I think you will get a copy of the score sheet, I haven’t checked with the team. Was a good day thanks to everyone involved in organising, stewarding, judging and of course submitting entries. Tried some cracking beers, well done to all that entered and congrats to those that place.

looking forward to hopefully judging officially next time.

What went into the placing, was it just the scores in the "Total" column or were their other factors?

We didn't talk about the prizes at all on the day. But I will be interested to see what they are as well.

The total score was made up from the 5 different attributes the beer was assessed on, out of 50 points possible. There were 2 judges scoring each beer, so a total of 100 points possible. So yes the beer with the highest total points in its category won that category.

Been following along, and was close to entering into this comp as well, congrats to all the place getters.

can I ask the guys who have received feedback, what kind of feedback is provided?

I haven’t entered any comps previously, but really want to mainly to get the feedback and areas of improvement

That’s exactly why I entered, to get feedback. Plus by stewarding for the day, I got to taste a ton of beer and here feedback straight away from the judges. Of the beers that were not so good, it seems a lot of people rush through primary without letting the yeast finish up, and that leaves faults in the beer.

Personally I’ve realised I’m leaving too much headspace in the bottle, and that’s prematurely aging my beer, and there were some oxidation comments as well. So I’m going to leave 1” max headspace in the future, and I’m starting work on a counter pressure filler bottling station.

The judges noted some malt/ingredient factors plus one on water chemistry as well that I’ve already addressed since making the beers I entered. So there were some quite clever feedback comments.

The IIPA I entered was well past it’s best, but still scored ok. Had I entered it when it was fresh I can see it would have done really well. So that’s another thing I learnt if you want to score well. Brew so your beers are at their best at the time of judging. I’m going to enter my third place Imperial Stout again next year and I’ll be very interested to see how it scores then.
