    The Averagely Perfect Saison was the third in a continuing series initiated by @VikeMan to “test the Wisdom of Crowds theory in a recipe development process”.

    The links below are to the threads for the AP Saison, in chronological order beginning* with Poll #1 – Yeast Genera (started January 2, 2015) and ending with “The How My Averagely Perfect Saison Turned Out Thread” (started April 3, 2015).
    *The origins of AP Saison (but not its mystical calculations) remain unknown. Seeking it out is the way of AP Saison.
