No lactic (its hard to calculate the pH with a weird base malt like this but both small batches I did not pH adjustments) I'd say just leave it alone unless its way off. (below 5.1 or above 5.5)

Notes

Pitch 300g of yeast @66F and ferment at 68F

For all hop additions other than bittering add an equal mix of all three hop varieties (Aht, Eldo, Amarillo)

Let me know if you have any troubles with the mash volume. It should be fine.
