Q: I recently purchased the Deluxe Yeast starter kit and it came with a small bottloe of foam control. Can you please tell me at what point in the process these should be used and what the dosage should be.
A: the foam control is used to limit the coagulation of bubbles in the starter to limit foam overs since the containers used are relatively small for satrers. A few drops per starter is normally sufficient and can be added before pitching the yeast
Q: How does the Foam Stopper compare with the breathable silicone Bung? I am a first time home brewer in search of a breathable silicone bung for a 5L oak barrel
A: The foam stopper is intended for use with the 1000ml and 2000ml flasks in place of a bung or tin foil. A breathable Silicone stopper that acts as both a stopper and an airlock. Unique design allows CO2 pressure to escape but keeps oxygen and airborne contamination out.
