Default Attempt at Tank 7 Farmhouse Style

I recently had a beer tasting party and the winner was Tank 7. It is certainly one of my favorite beers. I thought I'd try to make something similar. Here's what I tried, based on any other threads I could find about this beer:

10 lbs. 2 row
1 lbs. Vienna (I added this just to see what happened)
3 lbs. flaked corn
2 lbs. colorado white wheat
.2 lbs. acidulated malt

Mashed at 150

Hops:
.25 Magnum for 55 minutes
.25 simcoe for 20 minutes
the rest of my Amarillo (2.5 oz?) for 5 mins.

I decided to try WLP670, as I wouldn't mind a little sour funk, and the guy at the homebrew shop seemed to think this would come closest to the yeast they used, plus the funky Tank 7 effects....

My OG came out to 1.078, so right on what I'd hoped! Hoping this comes out tasty. Any thoughts are welcome.

Already tastes awesome in my hydro sample, only a week old, though obviously needs to mature, attenuate, and get more sour!. It seems to have stalled temporarily at around 1.026. It seems like this may be fairly normal for this yeast though? I started it around 70 degrees, and have ramped it up to more like 78 over the week. My plan was to leave it like this for the next 2-6 weeks and see what happens. I'm open to different ideas though. Cheers.

This is what I love about farmhouse beers. That's a lot of flaked maize--especially given that most of us at one time probably scoffed at BMC beers for using corn. But in a farmhouse beer? Hey, throw it in, that's being creative!

BMC is mostly rice not corn
