Here's why you don't fear the foam. I present starsan hat and beard! Sorry for the blurry pic I had to move fast, the star san was melting.

I must say I feel shiny and clean after that.

My starsan foam snakes are quite weak compared to the ones posted here. My inferiority complex is starting to take note...

Yeah, methinks he picked up the Fermcap-S just a couple batches too late...(kinda like me, but Oven-Off does wonders).

When I sanitized my carboy the other day (first time with starsan), there was very little foam to deal with. I put in the recommended 1 oz of starsan, filled the carboy up with ~5gal water, let that sit for 10 minutes, then dumped it all into a bucket for later use. Very little foam, it settled down quickly, and the carboy appeared empty within about 15 minutes. What are you all doing that's causing you to get all that foam?

Shaking the heck out of a much smaller volume of StarSan. That'll get some epic foam.
