I just lost a gallon of my maple nut brown due to blowoff. Does Fermcap really work? I've never heard of it until this.

It does work, very well. I use it for starters, as I use an erlenmeyer flask with little headroom, usually. You just have to be careful not to use too much, because it can kill your head retention later.
