Default Question about acidulated malt

I'm going to brew a clone of Eagle Rock's Revolution XPA and the recipe calls for 30 grams acidulated malt in a 6 gallon batch. I've never used acidulated malt before but I do always use lactic acid to bring down my mash pH. In my situation, is there any reason to also add the acidulated malt? I read somewhere that the acid in acidulated malt is lactic acid so it seems like it would be redundant. This is the only grain I don't have on hand and I'm tempted to drop it, but the OCD side of me isn't so sure. Thanks.

I'd say drop it and use lactic acid to get your pH. There's no reason in your situation to use both, and it would be redundant.

^^^True. Only real reason to use acidulated malt is if you are stuck in a 16th century Reinheitsgebot mentality
