Equipment and Software / Re: Cleaning and sanitizing airstones

I typically soak mine in StarSan for several minutes until the solution enters the tubing. Then force the StarSan out prior to aerating.  I'll boil the stone and the clamp every 4-5 sessions or so. No problems so far.

I like your hop choices.  I would use a neutral hop like magnum or warrior for your main bittering charge.  Amarillo, citra, and simcoe are to valuable to waste as a bittering charge. 
I was kind of thinking along those same lines. I want to use hops I have on hand and was considering Summit for the bittering hop.  I haven't used Summit so was kind of waffling back towards Simcoe.

I plan to brew an Imperial IPA tomorrow. Here's a link to the recipe.

http://beersmithrecipes.com/viewrecipe/11363/imperial-ipa

I want to use Citra, Amarillo & Simcoe in the brew. However, I've never used Citra or Simcoe, so I don't know how much or when to add them. I just took a guess when I created my recipe. Does anyone think I need to change my hops schedule? I could substitute with Cascade, if you think that would work better. The last thing I want is a beer that tastes like cat piss! LOL!

Also, what should I dry hop with?

Your opinions will be appreciated!   :)

I'm making an 'express IPA' Sunday with the same combination. I haven't finalized the hop bill yet but I'm leaning towards bittering primarily with the Simcoe, late additions of Amarillo and Cirtra and dry hopping with equal amounts of each.
