A belated update. The beer came out good. It could have been more sour. I have paid more attention to lowering the ph so the lacto has a better environment to work. I have used a acidulated malt and/or  lactic acid to lower the ph. Also, have patience when making your sour beer. It can take months. If you want quick results you can do a kettle sour. Another benefit of a kettle sour is the limited possibility of contaminating your equipment/brewing area.
