Ball Lock Spunding Valve (w/ Pressure Gauge)

THIS ITEM IS ON BACKORDER
Item currently out of stock
Description

A spunding valve is a great accessory to have when performing pressure transfers and is a must-have for fermenting under pressure. Designed by the MoreBeer! R&D team and made from stainless steel components for long-lasting quality. Our spunding valve features the Torpedo Keg gas-in disconnect and our specially designed adjustable stainless gas pressure relief valve (D1833L). This model also features a pressure gauge that reads from 0-15 psi.

Don't need the gauge? Check out our FIL42S.

Pressure Fermentation
Pressure fermentation is becoming more and more popular at the homebrew level, but in order to do it safely and accurately, you need a way to release excess pressure. You'll pressurize your vessel to your desired psi, but once fermentation begins and those hungry, active yeast start creating CO2, the pressure inside the vessel will increase. Attach a spunding valve and set it to your desired pressure, and it will blow off when the pressure gets to high and close up again when it's back to your desired psi.

Pressure Transfers
Even if you don't have a pressurizable fermenter, you may have done pressure transfers from keg to keg during filtering or after fining. During pressure transfers, it's a good idea to have a bit of head pressure in the receiving keg, especially if you're transferring beer that is already carbonated. Having a spunding valve in place will allow you to consistently control the head pressure and give you more consistent results, without losing carbonation in the process.

 

Note: The very end of the pressure relief valve can be adjusted by unscrewing the knurled adjustment knob. If too tight and not adjustable by hand, wrap a towel around the adjustment knob and loosen with pliers. Then finger tighten or loosen to desired pressure.

Is krausen or beer foam an issue with either the valve or the gauge, and what precautions are necessary to prevent these issues?
Brett Binns on Jan 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Brett - Best to use some kind of fermcaps and decent headspace, but the pressure actually keeps the krausen down.

Disappointed
I’m fairly competent when it comes to kegs, home brew parts etc. After watching videos of how this works, I set mine up. Right away I heard hissing. I made an adjustment on the knob. Still hissed. I finally grabbed the adapter where it met the post and found the source. The seal was loose.

I waited a day to see if more pressure would help. The next day the PSI read off the charts. So I dialed it back to 10 psi. 1 day later it was to 14 PSI. I dialed it back again, this time to 8PSI. 2 days later I went to check it and it had lost pressure. Very disappointed.

Steel is real. Works very well.
Works great. I hesitated in buying this after listen to a competitor sell me on the red plastic option. Steel is real. This is a reliable device that I believe will out perform the plastic version over time.

It works.
The Spunding valve works as it should. I gave it 3 stars because the gauge is as cheap as they come. It’s actually crooked, in relationship to its NPT fitting.
I’ll probably change the gauge to a nice liquid filled one. Then it would be a 5 stare gauge.
