Notes

Initial Mash is 2 gallons of DI water with full grain bill in BIAB bag. 0.1 tsp of CaCl, 0.1 tsp of MgSO4, 3mL of 88% lactic acid. Cal mash pH is 5.35.
Mash for 60 minutes then add additional 12 mL of lactic acid-- approx. mash pH will lower to 4.25. Tie bag, move kettle to hot box set at 100F. Allow to cool to 110F, then add 0.5 pounds of crushed pils malt to mash, cover with plastic wrap, and allow to sit at 100 F for 24 hours.
After sour mash complete, add remaining 5.9 gallons of DI water and remove bag, boil for 90 minutes, finish as normal.
