For one thing it is not a "grease" second it is a wax film just like a candle, paraffin base candle wax which has no taste. We have been using it for years with brewing friends without a problem.
This is what we use and the transfer solvent is dry within two minutes.
Now to drink the lube with the transfer solvent is flat stupid as well it is highly flammable hence the fast evaporstion rate.
Sorry for bring up what has worked trouble free for us for years.
That above quote is total B/S but then use what makes you happy.
Billions of candles in use without deaths and the above said "tastes".
I'm out of here on this reply. Again sorry to have mentioned such a "tastes very very very horrible and is extremely potent" product as a household candle is so common. I must get Ralph Nader on this one as he can save the world on this new and "extremely potent" product.
