I was thinking i'll probably bottle these anyway and just prime, but that was my major concern, i'd hate to lose months of waiting on bottle bombs. Would be the saddest day ever. I'd rather not have any critters near my kegging setup anyway.

I have been told any soft parts (bungs, gaskets, hose..possibly airlocks?) you will want to dedicate to can be cleaned fine.. Never done a sour just what I have heard on several different sources (podcast,HBT)
