I like to give 5335 a week. But the answer is let it work until it hits your desired ph

Makes sense - one more thing, if we end up with a pH too low for sach and pitch Brett should we plan for an extended the fermentation time? Or will it finish up in a couple weeks?

Only time I've worked with Brett was in a blend with Conan (Yeast Bay Funktown)

DMS is not an issue in sours so no long boil is necessary.
Lately, I've been wondering if DMS is an issue at all, at least on the homebrew scale ;)

I don't think Berliner Weisse is all that difficult, your plan seems sound to me!

I would love it if an exbeeriment proved I don't need to boil Pilsner malt for 90m haha.

Stay tuned... stay very tuned.

Marshall - what about the DMS precursor re-forming during an extended cover post-boil?  I know that longer boils are said to boil off most of the precursor (SMM), but how much is left to reform into DMS - a noticeable amount?  I hate to waste a typical 10 gallon batch to see, but maybe you could do that, as well if you could cover a portion of a batch while it cools?

It's on the list :)
