Yeah, mine gets pretty sour after about 2 weeks. I usually harvest/feed every week, if I have to wait longer I usually make some effort to rebalance it (e.g., hold back less starter tea). It's fine so long as I do a batch every week, but I've gotten fairly good at rebalancing when needed.
I do blend it sometimes, if it ends up being too sour for my liking. I produce more than I drink anyway, so I take some of bottles from a good batch, and mix it with the sour stuff when I bottle it. Works pretty well. You could also just blend at serving time.
