Boil Time for pLambic
I made a small batch (1.5gal) of pLambic wort last night, the grist included pils malt and unmalted wheat. I used some aged hops on this one, and it was made specifically to pitch a starter of Oud Beersel bugs.

The problem is, I was tired and just boiled it for 45 minutes, cooled and pitched my yeast. At which point I remembered that pils malt needs a longer boil to avoid DMS issues.

My question is, what boil length do people typically use for these worts and do you think I am doomed to taste sweet corn in this brew?

The wort I decanted off the Oud Beersel starter, smelled like vinegar and gym socks.

I use my typical boil time of 60 minutes. No signs of DMS when I use pils in my belgians, cream ales, and sours.

Re: Boil Time for pLambic
DMS is usually only an issue in lagers because of the less aggressive fermentation, so I wouldn't worry about it. Lambics are traditionally boiled for a few hours, but that is more a result of the large amount of wort collected from a turbid mash
