Re: partigyle with no boil sour?
That plans should work fine, although Iíd heat it close to a boil to kill the bugs from the mash/grain.
Berliners rely on Lactobacillus for their sourness, so one of the keys is to keep the IBUs as low as possible. The other sours rely on Pedio for their sourness, which isnít as IBU sensitive. Berliners are also really low gravity, so they donít require the wort concentration that the boil provides for other sours.
Hope that helps, good luck.
