Molasses, water, and pH

  1. High Blades,
         I'm doing ok, been fighting a N deficiency and am about 42 days of flower (52 days from 12/12 flip).  My trichomes are still pretty clear but getting about 40% brown hairs. 
         I'm going to start to flush next week, and I've intend to use, and have been using with watering (not feeding) about 1 tsp of unsulphured molassess (I know the molasses crowd is about 50/50 divided) per gallon of RO Water. 
       I'm growing in FFOF with 1/3 perlite, some dolomitic lime, diatomaceous earth, and some bat guano.  I'm using General Organics GO Box line and, other than an N deficiency in the past 2 weeks, have been happy with the results.  336 actual watts of CFL (8x42watts). 
        My question is this:  I've found that molasses does bring down the pH of my RO Water (usuallyl 6.9-7.1 pH).  Should I pH adjust the molasses solution or just pour it in. 
    GC is awesome, appreciate the knowledge base and positive feedback. 
       Here's a link to my grow.
