Would think the labyrinth breather would just be another point for air intrusion, but would also be handy for hopping, etc in the primary. I'd like to see some pictures of your setup if you don't...

Could add a lacto starter to the wort you desire to sour. Supposedly malted barley is loaded with lacto on the husks. Could add some of that instead of a starter, but it might also contain other...
