But if you are looking at the traditional Saison style (not the American interpretation)

The Belgians were already doing a number of Super Saisons well before our Craft brewers ever picked up the idea. It is true that the super saison is the preferred variety over here though.

Had a few weeks back and my thoughts on it were "damn, this is big and chewy and more than just a little meaty flavor"

Nah, mead's done and I'll probably hit it with Sorbistat to prevent a restart. I figure the normal dilution rate they recommend is 1 in 8, so since I want the honey (Tupelo) to be noticeable I'll start somewhere lower like 1 in 32 or 1 in 16.

Oh I forgot one I was going to do. I have some mead sitting by that could use a little "punch" so I thought I'd add some of this to the mix: Sour Cherry Juice Concentrate

Now, my only q is how to reasonably figure out the dosing rate for 3 gallons cause this stuff is seriously tart in concentrated form.

What's the game plan folks?

For me - it's going to be all about the Mayfaire Competition this weekend (we have ~340 entries to judge) and then kegging things for SCHF.

Man, good luck with that. I know I wouldn't want to share a birthday with Hitler. ;D

I prefer to think of it as sharing a birthday with Iggy Pop.

I'm sure there are weapons and calibers in which dirty ammo isn't really a concern at all

my 1911 is happy to feed wolf all day long. (I'm pretty certain Fletch has tuned that thing to shoot high powered pebbles.)

I just hate the amount of crud that I've got to keep hitting with cleaner.

I want off campus lunches for seniors and new soda machines in the quad.

The number I usually hear for active homebrewers in the US is ~750k

everytime I shoot Wolf ammo, I swear I spend twice as long cleaning my weapons.

Eh, I never view it (Club Night) or our annual SoCal Homebrewer's Festival in the light of "paying to give something away". I tend to look at it from the pov, I'm paying to enjoy my time and the other brewer's beer and I'm offering my beer to let them do the same. (ETA - I also view these events as life savers. If I tried to drink anywhere near the amount of beer that I brew - I'd be dead in a few months)

On the subject of the regions: an entry cap on entrants is interesting. Whether or not it would be effective would be entirely dependent on the number of large entrants per region you have. I know both Gordon and Jamil have entered in the 50 beer range, but I'm not aware of there being large numbers of folks entering similar numbers.
