I am going to teach a series of BJCP classes starting in February. We will meet once every month for a year. This series of classes provides the knowledge needed to become a BJCP beer judge. The classes consist of both technical education as well as development of analyzing skills. The series prepares you to pass the entrance exam as well as developing the judging skills needed for the tasting exam and judging in competitions. The exam is going to be scheduled for January of 2014, you do not need to take the exam to take the classes, but it is encouraged. The classes are open to anyone and not limited to people intending to become judges as the material is valuable for any homebrewer interested in taking their homebrewing to a higher level.
I need to get a fairly accurate count of who will be taking these classes so I can get classroom space and reserve an exam date. (There is already a year waiting list for a exam dates) I am looking at the Dank House or Goose Island. We can always use the brewhouse as a fall back.
Please respond to this post if you are interested and let me know if Tuesday Nights (6:30-10:30) or Saturday mornings (8:30-12:30) will work for you. If both times work respond BOTH.
Thanks and I look forward to the classes.
