There have been a number of post about using Silicon as a sealer for homebrew
projects. Some folks have suggested using automotive silicon sealer because of
temperature requirements, as a former auto mechanic I think this would be
unwise. All of the automotive grade silicon sealers I have used have a high
level of solvents in them. Granted, once they are dry they will hold up to
almost anything, I would still be quite worried about contact with things I
that I might eat or drink. Perhaps someone out there knows of a food grade
silicon sealer which would have the same kind of properties but we would know it
was safe for contract with food.

PS I will be working and drinking at this years Oregon Brew Festival and would
love to see some other HBDer's. Send me mail and we well try to set something
