Kettle boilovers can result in devastating burns, serious injury and even death. The sad truth is that boilovers are entirely preventable. Boilovers are abnormal events that are usually tied to actions of the brewer in determining process parameters. The lack of suitable hazard controls amplifies the opportunity for a boilover. The use of a foam inhibitor are crucial to brewer safety.
Using anti foam may seem to be a counter-intuitive idea. It would seem fair to consider that putting something in wort or fermenting beer to control foam will also kill the head on the finished product. However, when anti-foams are used properly, quite the opposite is true! Just don’t use too much, a drop or two will handle most boils.
