    Is this normal?

    Made a Pliny the Elder clone last weekend with WLP-001. I dumped everything from the BK into primary and got about 4-5 inches of hop trub in the bottom (pic 1). Then when the yeast took off the beer turned green (pic 2). It is burning through fermentation. Thermostat probe reads 67-69 degrees...

    Just opened WLP001 and is smells like cider

    I just opened a 3 month old pure pitch of WLP001 and noticed a cider smell. I still put it in my starter. Think its ok to pitch?
