It's really 0.08 lb. Roased barley is extremely dark with an SRM value of around 300. Half a pound of it would be way too much.

Oh, maybe I should mention that the temp was in the mid 60's, not the 90's that I've read that lacto likes. Does that make any difference?

What was your IBU target? An OG of 1.100 is way high and you need a ton of hops to balance a beer that huge out.

I just made one with a Love controller that cost, like, 2x or 3x as much? Dang! Next time I think I'll go with the STC. Thanks for the tip.

Doesn't sound like you waited too long at all. If you have off flavors like "sour," you'll need to re-evaluate your sanitation procedures. No use messing with your recipe until that's under control.

I don't think it's a big deal. It may turn out a bit darker, though. I believe boiling wort results in Maillard reactions-- the caramelization of sugars in the wort.
