Worked great for Berliner Weisse sour mash
Made the wort. Cooled it to 100F. Pitched this. Put kettle on a folded up towel, put a small heating pad on it, and then two blankets and two sleeping backs. Kept it at around 90 to 100 for four days, tasting every morning and night. When it was at the level of sourness that I liked I finished the batch as normal. Worked great and people enjoy it, including some women who say they don't like beer.

Fantastic for Berliner Weisse
I pitched this at 95 degrees for the first two days of my berliner and got an awesome lacto flavor/aroma. Yogurt and funk. Would definitely recommend, but as it's twice the cost of White Labs Lacto it could be a lot cheaper. Definitely avoid a starter with this, you'll end up killing most of the bacteria if you do.

Would this be a good mix to make a sour prickly pear melomel?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, it should work out well. Omega sells a very nice blend of lacto as well, which I highly recommend.
