I’m just not ready. period.

The decision was made last week when the deadline to sign up for the test passed.

The dominoes started long before that……
While I feel I did enough reading….I failed to do the memorization required to remember many of the details of the styles such as SRM/IBU/abv
I failed to pass the beer judge certification entrance online exam. This told me that I wasn’t ready for the Certified Cicerone exam.

What’s next?
Studying begins in earnest for the BJCP entrance exam(the one I failed) and the BJCP tasting exam that takes place here in Madison in November.
The window of opportunity to take the Certified Cicerone test opens up again early next year.
