My bottle of Fermcap-S says to use it in the fermenter, I think 1 drop per gallon.
I've only used it on one batch so far, in the starter and again in the boil. The starter didn't seem to foam up at all, only a very thin layer of bubbles at best, but the yeast was certainly growing.
Also worked great during the boil though I'm not sure if it carried through to the fermenter. It looked like it made the standard 2-inch krausen head in the carboy, nothing I wouldn't expect for a 1.054 O.G.
