Hi, I is there any bjcp mead judges around here? I want to know where I could do bjcp mead judge training and certification.

Thanks

There haven't been any BJCP Mead or Cider exams done here, so unless there's a BJCP Mead lurker out there, your best bet would be using the BJCP's resources.

Study Guide

Ingredient Descriptions

Exam guide

I would guess that to do the proctored exam (as opposed to the online part 1), you will have to travel possibly to the US.

Do you know who judges mead at the nationals?

Not in the Beer Nationals; separated out this year, hope to run a Cider, Mead & Wine (fermented, rather than brewed) Comp later this year.

Do you know when that competition will be on?
Who will you get to judge the comp?

Davey from Tempted has been the head cider judge in the past and I've helped out with the mead judging with him. There is one BJCP mead judge in Ireland- Denis in Kinsale Mead Co is a Certified BJCP Mead Judge.

Must get on to Denis so!

Where can I find out more about this upcoming mead and wine competition?

I think its Denis Mrs that's the BJCP judge.

Any chance of inviting them up to Dublin for a short mead judging course ( say 4 hours, sensible cost to attend and we pay their expenses)?

Get them to impart the basics of meads, how to make and how to taste and assess.

Lets start a list!

Remember: The Nationals are just round the corner - time to get brewing

That might be possible- it was tweeted from their Kinsale Mead Co twitter account. I will get in touch and confirm.
