The caulk tube type sealant I use on brewing equipment is -
Dow Corning(r) 734 RTV self leveling Adhesive/Sealant,
"may be used in contact with food and in electrical/electronic
applications", a data sheet is available for FDA/NSF/UL status.
"Adheres to glass, cork, phenolic, cured silicone rubber, polyester,
epoxy and many metals and plastics." Temperature range -85d F. to
450d F.

This stuff is less viscous than normal caulk (thats where the "self
leveling" comes in), but its the only stuff I have run across thats
food grade.

Maybe I could hook a giant syringe needle on the end of the tube and
do beer belly implants:-)
