Ready Made Spunding Valve – $29.99

via William’s Brewing Adjustable Pressure Relief Valve Assembly with 0 to 60 PSI gauge.  The PRV valve has a range of 15 to 50 PSI.  Has a 1/4″ female flare fitting (connect to your pin or ball lock QD).

A Spunding Valve has lots of applications…

Spunding Valve Uses
  1. Pressurized fermentation.  Ferment in a 5 or 10 gallon corny keg and use your Spunding Valve instead of an airlock.  This allows you to ferment at your desired pressure.
  2. Dry hop under pressure.  This allows you to dry hop earlier while reducing oxygenation.  Active yeast are more likely to metabolize oxygen that’s introduced during dry hopping during active fermentation.  Since CO2 is not exiting beer as vigorously under pressure, wanted compounds, flavors and aromas are more likely to stay in your beer under pressure.
  3. Naturally and accurately carbonate beer right in the keg.
  4. An airlock replacement.  Keep the valve wide open for non-pressurized fermentations.  Only do this if you have plenty of head space.  This wouldn’t make a great blow off tube.
  5. Keg to keg transfers.  Use the Spunding Valve to allow excess gas to exit the receiving keg as you transfer under pressure.  Helps you achieve a slow, controlled and pressurized transfer.
  6. Fix over-carbonated beers.  Use the same general process as for carbonation (skipping the addition of fermentable sugar).  Use a carbonation chart to determine proper pressure for the temperature the keg is at.  The Spunding Valve allows excess pressure to vent until the new carbonation level is achieved.  You can agitate the keg to fix carbonation more quickly.
  7. Test for keg leaks.  Pressurize your keg to serving pressure.  Put the Spunding Valve on (with the pressure set well above your serving PSI) and note the reading.  The gauge should remain steady.  If pressure drops, you know you have a keg leak.  It’s worth noting that this checks the entire keg including gas body o-ring.  That spot is hard to check and other way as it’s only in function when the gas QD is on.  When the gas QD is on… it’s difficult to spray and check for bubbles underneath the gas QD.  Thanks to Scott Janish for this tip!
  8. As an airlock for long term aging of beers.  Airlocks can run dry over time.  A Spunding Valve will not.

 

If you’ve been eyeing our Spunding Valve Build, but don’t want to put it together yourself, here’s your chance.  As of this posting, William’s Brewing has this for $29.99.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

HBF Reader Christian Says… “I have four of these. Use them for fermenting under a controlled pressure. Also use them for counter pressure transfers. Highly recommend.”

Oxygen System w/Stainless Wand, Tubing and .5 Micron Stone – $54.99

Oxgenation System from William’s Brewing.  Includes oxygen regulator (made in the US) for use with disposable oxygen bottles (not included, typically found at local hardware stores), tubing, stainless steel wand and .5 micron aeration stone.

Why aerate your wort? – from William’s Brewing…  “Yeast needs oxygen to reproduce and produce strong cell walls. If the cell walls are weak, the yeast will have a low tolerance for alcohol, and can die before fully fermenting out the wort. Particularly in worts with starting gravities in excess of 1.050, this can contribute to long lag times, slow ferments, and higher than normal finishing gravities. Like an air stone in a fish tank provides oxygen for fish to breathe, wort aeration provides needed oxygen for yeast respiration and growth.”  [full description]

This has dropped $5 since the last time we posted about it.  As of this posting, this is selling for $54.99. Check William’s Brewing for up to the minute price and availability.

Free CO2 with Mini Keg Regulator Purchase from William’s Brewing

william's brewing mini regualtor

Female Flare Micro Regulator from William’s Brewing

“The Brewer’s Edge® Micro Regulator combines the precision of a Mini Regulator, with the portability of a simple gas injector. Featuring a 0-30 PSI range, precisely adjustable with the calibrated top knob. Best of all, it takes all standard 16 gram threaded and 74 gram threaded C02 cartridges, so you have the choice of a lightweight compact unit with the 16 gram, or a high capacity unit with the 74 gram cartridge. Lightweight aluminum construction means the total weight is just a hare under 5 ounces.

Features a 0-30 psi C02 regulator that features precise adjustment via the calibrated top adjustment knob. It features a inline stainless check valve between the regulator and the ball lock fitting to protect it from backflowing beer. With this 0-30 PSI model, you can both dispense and force carbonate. Includes a ¼ female flare fitting, to fit threaded gas ball lock disconnects and the Ultimate Growler Dispensing Head.

The flared outlet on the side that goes to the stainless ball lock fitting can be unscrewed and leaves a 1/8″ female NPT port. Into this port you can screw any 1/8″ NPT male thread hose barb or threaded outlet (such as our item I80).”

Uses for Mini CO2 Regulators
  • Portable Serving: As an on-the-go regulator.
  • Backup – I’m out of CO2 and I want to pour a beer! Use as a backup if your main CO2 tank runs out.  Swap out the CO2 line for this regulator and you’ve got a temporary solution to keep you up and going until you can get more CO2.
  • Serve Beers at Alternate Carbonation Levels: This regulator goes up to 30 PSI.  That’s plenty to serve high carbonation beers like Hefeweizens and Belgians.  If you don’t have a dual or triple pressure setup, you could use this regulator to serve beers at higher pressures.  I would not suggest force carbonation with this unit.  The 74g cartridges would be pricey. You could carbonate using your existing regulator or just as easily naturally carbonate with priming sugar.  After the beer is completely carbonated, use this to serve at the higher pressure.

 

As of this posting, William’s Brewing is giving away five 16 gram CO2 Cartridges.  From William’s: With the purchase of select Female or Male Flare Micro Regulators. Make your own portable draft system with this tiny 0-30 PSI regulator. They take both 16 and 74 gram threaded C02 cartridges, and attaches to any threaded ball or pin lock fitting.  Order Regulator B75 or D53 between now and Saturday at midnight, and automatically receive 5 free 16 gram C02 cartridges.  Works with these two regulators…
