This stuff is awesome. No blow off tubes needed again, no more boilovers in the pot.

Love it.

Same here, tried it for the first time on my last batch, it totally rocks. I only have a 30 qt pot, so this really, really helps.

I used some in primary for the first time in this last batch. I didn't use as much as specified but saw a remarkable reduction in krausen.

The trick is the use the lip of the bottle to wipe the excess off the dropper, then let off the pressure after each drop, and you will get real drops, not just a stream of fermcap

I've never used it in a full batch of beer but I wouldn't even think of doing a starter without it.
