Notes

Add wheat malt at end of steeping and cool to 110-120 F (46 C). Steep 3 oz (80 g) of pilsner malt in a bag for 1-3 days, or until desired sour flavor has developed. Then boil for 15 minutes with hops.

Make sure to sterilize steeping bags before use.

I steep using 2.5 L of water, and souring is done in a zip-lock bag, with air squeezed out. Bag is submerged in a water bath with temp maintained with a sous-vide wand.

Normal BE recipes use uncracked grains. I used the remainder of my cracked ones, because I had them.

Have made this three times. Sous vide and plastic bags are key to the sour flavour. Amazing.
