I've heard that Briess Pilsener and possibly another Briess malt are the only not well modified base malts.

I vaguely remember reading that you treat as brown material. Other than that it should work fine in compost.
That Zymurgy article also has syrup recipes that I am going to try. When sour mashing, how do you sanitize the mash tun following the souring? I would need to use a picnic cooler to hope to maintain temps....but I would hate to have a permanent sour only vessel.
An aside: could we get a 'hop growing' section in the AHA Forum?+1
A final bit of advice... Have a plan to combat Japanese beetles. They seem to have a preference for certain varieties (Willamette and Centennial in my garden). They only want to eat the leaves, but I'm sure it slows the plants' growth down. I just spray with water daily to knock them off.
Not sure where in the burbs you're located, but if you need any rhizomes, I can cut plenty off my plants and give them to you. My Goldings and Willamette have huge root systems, so I could cut lots from those. My Chinook may be ready for some cutting too. PM me if you're interested.
