Nobody knows. It's not even a pure lacto culture, there's most likely other stuff on the grain too. We just chuck it in an hope for the best. That is also the cause of a lot of this confusion.

Active, but much slower. From my experience (~5 batches) I get the same sourness at either 2 days at 110F or 7-8 days at 70F.

7 days at room temp and lacto ate almost all of my fermentables. This beer is going to be 1% hopefully when I had planned on a ~4%

True, but I haven't seen this extreme of a drop in gravity in my 4-5 times I've soured my wort. I'm going to have a 1% beer at this point.

I started souring 2 gallons wort with a handful of grain at room temp (~72F) 8 days ago and it's finally sour enough to boil and start fermenting today. Just another anecdote.

2 lb of kumquat for 5 gallons? I haven't had the CCB beer but if it has a big fruit flavor you're going to need a lot more then 2 lbs for 5 gallons. I think the common addition rate is 1lb/gallon...
