did you add this stuff when it was done fermenting or while it was still fermenting? It will not stop a fermentation in progress!

my only explosion was a case of stout that I bottled during a stuck fermentation, some 10 years ago almost.
it too was stored in my bedroom closet. thankfully I was in the room when it happened and got the case into the bathtub quickly.
