Description

Stop boil overs in the kettle and limit foaming in your fermenter with CellarScience Foam Axe. This uniquely formulated anti-foaming agent reduces surface tension so bubbles are Axed before they can form. Foam Axe actually increases head formation in the finished beer by retaining foam forming proteins that would have normally blown off during fermentation. Use it in your boil kettle to prevent boil-overs for a cleaner, safer process. Then add Foam Axe to your fermenter to reduce Krausen, save beer, and increase the volume capacity of your fermenter.

In the Kettle:
Nobody likes a boil over as they are messy and take considerable time to clean up. Save time, beer, your burner or stove, (and possibly your relationship) by adding 1 drop per gallon of Foam Axe into your kettle and eliminate boil overs from your brew day!    

In the Fermenter:
Foam Axe works like magic in the fermenter. Just 2 drops per gallon at the start of fermentation will keep your airlock and blowoff clean. We recommend adding before pitching yeast and rousing well while you aerate your wort. Many commercial breweries use Foam Axe to increase fermenter capacity and homebrewers can do the same.

Additional Notes:
Foam Axe is made from food-grade silicone and works by breaking up foam particles and dispersing surface tension. Foam Axe settles out of beer prior to bottling or kegging. Store cool and in an environment below 90°F. Do not freeze.

The recommended shelf life is 12 months from the date the package is opened.

Amazing
Stop fighting the foam and get this already. A few drops and the angry boil over gods are at bay. I finally got a hold of some of this and my last brew day was such a pleasure when it came to the boil stage. At the first sign of the brew gods demanding to give me more clean up work I plopped in a few drops and the eruption subsided with the quickness, I was in awe at how fast it knocked it down. I will make sure to always have this in my arsenal from now on for not only the piece of mind but the safety of my floor and time from the clean up it prevents.

Perfect for single vessel all grain systems
Excellent boil over control in my Anvil Foundry which with a heavy grain bill often threatens boil over without constant stirring. A few drops of this and the entire boil was set it and forget it.
