They have a recipe for pliney the elder. It doesnt say clone. Are they legit?
That looks like the original recipe that Vinnie gave out, pre-2009, but no sugar. The newer one does not use Mash Hops or Warrior. Zymurgy has a more recent recipe from Vinnie.

Is the latest one?

All Grain Brewing / Re: Lid on partially?

If you think DMS will be an issue leaving the lid on partially take a look at almost every commercial system and see how it is entirely covered except for the part where the chimney is.

They also have kettles designed to keep condensation from dripping back into the boil.

That's what they are for :) Do you mean to bottle condition in them with priming sugar? They may explode as they are not designed for the pressures of bottle conditioning beer.

Just getting Zymurgy is worth the price. Getting 10% off at my LHBS is a bonus. Supporting the cause of homebrewing is icing on the cake.

Bottling a FBS clone and brewing up a Zombie Dust clone.

I have one of these coolers. I tried adding the bulkhead through the sidewall since the drain is at that weird angle. I can't get a proper seal since the sides "smoosh" when the bulkhead is tightened. I have to get some food safe silicone to seal it up. Until then I just make what I can in my 50 qt and mash thick (1:1) when I go big.

I recently had a wild yeast infection. The ferment took 72 hours to kick off. Never skipping a starter again. The ferment was very cloudy, never cleared up which was my first indication of something wrong. Final gravity was about 1.002 and tasted like solvent.

Here a Danstar yeast expert explains why you rehydrate but DO NOT make a starter:

Zymurgy / Re: eZymurgy Q's

The eZymurgy apps are not yet available, but they are coming. It's proven more challenging to make this happen than we anticipated, but we do have work underway and expect to launch sometime around April.
Fantastic! I've been waiting for this!
