Well after hearing this I might hold off until I have some extra money to burn on sour equipment. Would it be worth my while maybe to try it in a 1 gallon carboy? $5 I can do.

Wish I would have seen this earlier as your back in Pittsburgh now. If you're ever back in town check out Square One Brewery in Laffayette Square if you haven't already. It's one of the best imo.

You think I should wait til the S-33 is done or just pitch K1V asap? I'm getting some tubing to make a blow and I'll just pitch it then if it's the right thing to do.

I'm about to make my first mead and from what I've read buckwheat honey is a pretty strong flavored honey. If I were to use 3lbs of buckwheat in a 15lb batch would it be too overpowering?
