Another vote for Fermcap s. It precipitates out, so you don't have to worry about it affecting the head retention of your beer. I usually err on the side of "more is better", and I haven't had a single issue, boilovers or longterm effects, in all the batches I've brewed.

I think in that case I'm just gonna go that route. Seems like such a cheap simple solution and if its proven to work I'm all good with that!!!😎

Fermcap. It the single best new thing since I started brewing again.

Used to be, I'd have to watch the pot during the entire brew. Now I can walk away and clean stuff or whatever else needs to be done.

I was using 2 drops per gallon, but I cut back to 1 on my last few batches and that works just as well.
