Notes
Starting at 152deg for 45 min. 1.25qts/LB

Cool to below 120deg.Add 1/4# raw grain. Sour everything 3 days @110deg w/plastic wrap and CO2 blanket on surface.(final pH was 3.7-I'd say 8/10 for sourness)

Batch Sparge(170deg) to collect total pre-boil Vol.
Proceed with boil as normal.
Used a full pkt of yeast to give an advantage against the harsh pH
