From what I'm understanding this assumption would be based on the fact that only the Heterofermentative Lacto is stated as producing CO2? And since my fermentation was full of CO2 it must have been Heterofermentative and thus also produced ethanol?

I think that's the way I'm understanding this. Either way thanks a ton for the info!

Or you unintentionally had yeast in there as well.

Again, I don't believe it was yeast, but it's possible. I don't taste any off flavors from the 90 degree ferment though. That and the complete lack of a krausen with a very active ferment. I pitched 3L of lacto so the strong and fast fermentation makes sense but every time I have pitched yeast starters this size or larger I have had blow off, but with this it was just churning strong with no krausen. I took a video of it, maybe i should post it. At the very least, it was no regular yeast in there....
