Yep, mash hop and steep some in the bucket when you run off. As long as you never boil, there doesn't seem to be enough AA extracted to be an issue for the lacto.

Let that sit for three days, then pitch your yeast. It's the way they actually do it in Berlin, so I figure it's the way I should do it, too.
Are you sure they aren't throwing in grains after the fact? I'm pretty sure that if you keep your mash tun at 150+ for an hour, most of the lacto is going to be dead.

Many farms pasteurize milk at 150 degrees for under an hour. Guess what makes milk sour...

Miraculously, I have a batch of BW in my basement getting ready for bottles right now brewed in exactly the fashion I described. It's the second batch I've brewed doing it just this way, and they are both most certainly sour.

Cool, I think I'll give that a try on my next one.
