    Suggest you do your electronic entry first - otherwise it's hard to get the Group No. for your entry correct (well at least that was my experience!)
    Four entries on their way (a bit of a leap of faith here as I only bottled 3 of them today)

    I'm filling out the entry sheet and bottle labels for posting off today.
    On the paper entry form two examples are listed.

    Checking against the pretty chart on the comp website,

    B1 8c Extra Special Bitter no worries
    B13 21B Black IPA ... where do you get the 13 from?

    Edit,
    Also if, for example I have entered two Extra Special Bitters how do I know which one scored what?

    Had to head to the post to avoid the long weekend.

    So I just labelled them in the format of (not necessarily entering this style) :p

    B1 8c Extra Special Bitter
    B2 8c Extra Special Bitter

    2 different entries in the style.

    Cheers

    Hi Bribie,

    You don't seem to have completed the online entry form, which was designed to cater for differentiating 2 entries of the same style - to aid in administration this form is also needed to be completed this year, See

    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1mhdED2rSW5ELuE0ds8-TOtpk96SPDjoDL12Vbd7Y7b0/viewform?c=0&w=1

    Cheers

    See answer to my previous post - the online entry form has the specific Group and entry number details.

    Cheers

    Submitted again, hope it gets through this time. When I did the first online form it thanked me and all good, so don't know what happened there.

    Sorry to be a PITA. Can I PM or email someone to edit my paper form to correspond with the online form - when it arrives with the bottles - as they are now out of whack with each other?

    Just rechecked, you did indeed submit your form. I was confused by you using your real name!!
    You just did I will fix up your paper form to suit your second form entry.

    Cheers

    Thanks Peter, out of interest how did the Australian IPAs stack up, number of entries and range of scores?

    Personally I was well pleased with my effort as a drinking beer and it would be great to see a style properly "formalised". Comps such as ESB being the perfect test bed for perfecting the style.

    Edit: wouldn't it be great if the State competitions had an Aussie IPA entry, for evaluation, comments and suggestions only at this stage, and judged in the BJCP fashion, but not counting towards any competition wins or scores.

    My scoresheets arrived yesterday. I scored very well in my first attempt at brewing a style I still haven't quite grasped (Black IPA) and got good feedback that explained how I could have scored higher.

    I'm pretty chuffed with the 1st place I got for my Best Bitter, although I have no delusions of grandeur with my skills (my all grain ESB did average).

    My winning Best Bitter was just a fresh wort kit from the Brew Shop, fermented in a no chill cube in my bar fridge. Now to see if my AG skills can improve haha..
