PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE USING eJUDGING!
- NEW - READ THIS! Reggie now shows a tab-controlled menu of all scoresheets in your flight. This allows you to evaluate
entries and then later go back to review or update your scoring and notes. In general, you still should work with your judging partner and judge the entries
- On the Reggie eJudging scoresheets, each of the sections (Aroma, Appearance, Flavor,
etc.) are tab-controlled so that you only see one section at a time, but you can easily click on the tab for any other section to switch.
- On the eScoresheet tabs (Aroma, Appearance, Flavor, etc.), the label of the tab is color coded to help you see what sections of the
scoresheet still need to be completed.
- Red means that you have not addressed one or more sliders, comments, or checkboxes in that section.
- Violet means that the section has only optional sliders (the Flaws section, for example), and that you haven't marked any of them -
this is just a reminder to look at that tab and optionally adjust sliders as appropriate.
- Green means that all inputs on that particular tab have been addressed, and that tab is complete, although you can still go
back and update your notes.
- Plan for a gusher: open bottle away from your laptop/keyboard/phone
- Do practice scoresheets: use Competition PIN of 'beer', 'mead', 'cidr', or 'eval' for Reggie Evaluator (not for competitions)
- On video? Show other judge the bottle label BEFORE opening
- Courtesy to other judges: 7-10 minutes per entry (no more than 15)
- Virtual Judging? Head judge is responsible for scheduling sessions and arranging audio/video call
- Refrigerate bottles overnight then transfer to cooler while judging
- Communicate your status with other judge(s) to keep things moving
- ALWAYS judge each beer at the same time as the other judge judges that same beer (unless specifically instructed otherwise by the Judge Director)
- Set up your home judging environment - see this
