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.

No love for brew kitties, eh? :-D

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.
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!
