I just burned an hour reading these posts as well as other threads in other forums. What do the folks at Fermcap say about their product?
I had a similar question about whether or not dumping PBW in my septic would have adverse effects (the label says it's "environmentally safe") but PBW doesn't list its active ingredients either.
Some natural gas companies dont want to disclose the chemicals they want to use for hydro-fracking calling it a trade secret. Do you think/trust these chemicals are environmentally safe? Who cares about clean drinking water, right now we need jobs! (sorry about that I slipped- we're talking beer here not politics)
My take away from this is i am going to keep using Fermcap S at the dosage of 2 drops per gallon in my fermentor. I am leaving the blowoff on through high krausen. IMO there is not enough evidence to support it being a health risk. And if it were, in order for me to ingest enough to do harm, I would have to drink enough beer that i would be more wooried about what the alcohol is doing to my liver.
