I dunno, do you really want to use brew equipment that isn't rated food-safe? Again, I don't know if it's something that we should worry about, just asking.

That's a good idea, thanks. What kind of wood do you use? Do you need to make sure it's not treated with something poisonous? And do you not worry about it getting infected? I mean even if you only...

I've only done a few all-grain batches and my efficiency is still all over the place. I like to calculate efficiency when I start the boil so I know if I should add a little extract or maybe change...

Well, right now the sour mead's got an odd sharp garbage flavor, so not a big fan. It went through a stage of dirty diaper but that cleaned up so maybe it'll still improve.

Yep, tasted it a couple of weeks ago. It's super sour -- undrinkably so -- but I imagine it will improve, or at least change with time. It's hard to detect any flavors other than the sour but there...

I wouldn't add that much to the boil. Best way I've found to add spices is to macerate a bit in vodka for a few days and then add to secondary to taste.

In my experience honey will add a nice honey bite in the finish, and .5-1# should be enough.
