i'd like to do a 1 Gallon lambic sour beer.

what do you think of this recipe?
1.5lbs pils malt
1oz acidulated malt
8oz torrified wheat
1/2 pound raspberries

1/4 ounces Tettnanger/hallertau (whichever i have in stock)
added @ 30min

raspberries added the last 15min of boil.

dry yeast t-58

thoughts and any suggestion?

i want to stick with a dry yeast and i do want it sour.

Lambics are not fruited in the boil. Where do you intend to get lambic style souring cultures from? They dont come dry... you will need something like lambic blend.

You can do a sour mash, but it will be more like a berlinerweiss than a lambic. Add the fruit in secondary, as Bobby said.
