The Blichmann Engineering™ Spunding Valve is purpose-built for pressure fermentation. With exacting precision, you’ll turn out lager-like beer at ale temperatures in no time!
Pressurized fermentation is a great option for creating lager-like flavor profiles at room temperature, without the hassle of temperature control. And you’ll complete your fermentations faster and easier. The Blichmann Engineering™ Spunding Valve is purpose built for homebrewers to control your pressures with exacting precision.
Research by Blichmann Engineering™ and White Labs shows significant reduction of esters (fruity flavors found in most ales) and low levels of diacetyl, by fermenting under pressure.
Ferment under pressure to produce clean, low ester, lager-like beers
Extremely fine adjustments from 0 to 35 psi, and superb pressure stability
Suitable for vessels up to 42 gal (1BBL batch size)
Perfect for naturally carbonating your beers
Use for counter-pressure transfers
Offered in ½” NPT and Tri-clamp models for the ultimate in adaptability
Integral blow-off barb fitting adds a visual indication of fermentation if desired
Tri-Clamp model is ideal for most pressure fermentors with T.C. fittings
So far so go. Good quality. Easy to adjust and set to the desired pressure. The gas in connection is a nice feature to both capture CO2 to purge kegs after fermentation, as well as to add pressure prior to fermentation ramp up.
Haven’t been able to use it yet because the gauge came reading ~5psi without being attached to anything. I contacted Blichmann directly and they said it’s a faulty gauge and they are sending me a new one. I’ll do my best to update when I get the new gauge and can try it out.
