I have to be honest somethings gotta change with these BJCP 2015 guidelines if this is going to continually happen.
I may have given impression I'm have a problem with current category entry numbers. I don't.
No one seemed to be complaining when two years ago pilsner in SD had 5 entries while IPA had 87.
as Dennis said the problem isn't the 2015 guidelines.
I support separate entry limit for mead and cider because entry numbers are tiny and we've got room for more without changing anything.
Add one category for American Wild, move fruit and spice to Fruit Beer, couple other tiny tweaks...and done.
