I don't see why you couldn't use the Lowes buckets, my only concern would be making sure I had an equal pitch of yeast into each bucket. If you can do that, (or aren't worried about it) go for it.

Syrupy sweet? That seems to me like the balance of the beer was off to start meaning there were not enough IBUs to properly balance the beer. While the hop aroma and flavor will fade kind of quick, the bitterness balance should be more intact, a little less but not appreciably.My first thought, too. Maybe it was not fermented completely? Or stalled? What was the original recipe, and how did you ferment it?
