My experience has been that it does not make it from the boil kettle into the fermenter (using a plate chiller). It DOES help a lot with preventing boilovers which is why I got it in the first place.

I use Foam Control and add it to my kettle only and it is still effective in the carboy. I picked it up from Hoptech I think.
