Notes

Kettle sour the wort for 1-2 days (to your taste or PH) with what ever you prefer (active yogurt starter, kefir grain,
proper lacto culture, acidulated malt inoculation). Then proceed as usual with boil and ferment, adding cucumber and
lemongrass to secondary 3 days before bottling or kegging.
No need to include the Acidulated malt if you are not using it to inoculate and sour.
