I found this method in an issue of Zymurgy and highly recommend it if you try this again.

1. Make a sour starter - 2 tablespoons of un-milled grain in 1.030 wort in a flask for three days at 100 - 110 (I use a heat stick in a water bath and temp controller to keep the temp - it will smell and taste tart).

2. Do a regular mash and cool to 100-110. The sour starter goes in for 12 - 36 hours depending on how sour I want it to get (Again I use a heat stick and temp controller to keep the temp).

3. Boil with hops and ferment with a clean ale yeast.

I then make a few different fruit syrups and add to taste or drink as is.

This makes a great Berliner Weisse that you could be drinking in less than one month.
