+1

Most of us are doing the weldless thing. We need the o-ring to make the seal. If you have a welded 1/2 coupling you should not need the o-ring. Put on some teflon tape and give it a water test.

The first thing that comes to mind is this is a sour blend. I don't think I have ever heard anyone recommend building up a yeast pitch from a small amount when it is a blend.

I use US-05 alot. Without using any simple sugars my typical finial gravity on 1.050 - 1.060 OG beers is around 1.008. I think getting a 1.007 FG after adding 4% honey is right in the ball park.
