Ok so I have a recipe that calls for 3 lbs of buckwheat honey. 3lbs would be like 20 something bucks and I would like to try to do this recipe on a budget. Can I substitute 2 1/2 lbs of clover honey and 1/2 lbs of molasses? Thanks!

I'm not sure on that.. If you've tried buckwheat, it tastes, well wheaty. So if you want the color, then what you've described will work, and if this is in a beer, then the malt should cover the wheat flavor.
