Notes
Home grown spontaneous Lacto
1c raw uncrushed 2-row add 1c 130F water, mason jar. Allowed to grow at room temp for aprox 1 week.
Split wort into 2 3G carboys and pitched this homemade Lacto (added a little water and sluried it around, pitched the solution) into one and added the WY5335 into the other. After a 3 day head start at about 90F, added dehydrated Safale 05 into each CB and allowed to finish. Racked after about a week, keeping each separate. Home made Lacto was much more sour. Bottled this and primed for 3.5v and after 3 weeks at room temp, first test was pretty much perfect.
