Foam formation and control during fermentation, e.g. beer brewing, is discussed under the following headings: adverse effects of foam; classification of foams; factors affecting foam formation; foam control in fermentation; chemical methods of foam control (antifoams, foam breaking mechanism, adverse effects of antifoams, effect of O2-transfer rate, automatic antifoam addition devices); physical methods of foam breaking (ultrasonic defoamers, thermal and electrical foam breakers); mechanical foam breakers; combined-action foam control; and prevention of foams by appropriate strategies.
