Not having much experience in the competiton side of things, can you tell me the significance of the Bathurst comp? Is it the NSW comp? or just a big comp that a lot of people seem to enter? How does it rate against, say, the National Comp?

Cheers - Snow

The Bathurst comp is widely regarded as a well run and organised comp.
It is not the NSW comp.

It is really the only major comp held at this time of the year with the state and national comps held around Sept.

Beers,
Doc

It is well run

Entering a competition will give you feedback from experienced judge who does not know who's beer he is tasting. Your mates will always say your HB is great, a comp is a chance to find out how great, and how to make it better.

Bathurst is open to kit, extract and mash brews

Hey- thats me in the Belgian wit category. Of the couple of bottles I entered I thought the wit was the worst. But I guess there would have been a lot more entries in my other categories. 87 doesnt sound very high. Forgive my ignorance, but what is the score out of?

Well done Simon.
Yep that is me in the Strong Ale. It was my James Squire Australian Strong Ale clone.
The Andrew is the Andrew from this list AFAIK.
The scores are out of 150. 50 points max from three judges.

I believe the score sheets were being mailed Monday this week so you should have them any day now.

Beers,
Doc

Congrats to all the AHB boys. You've inspired me to have a stab next year, or maybe in the September round of comps if I'm ready. Again, well done,

Shawn.
