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.

PERLICK FAUCET 630SS GROWLER FILLER

Helps fill growlers from the bottom up.  That reduces foam and waste and it should help cut down on oxygen pickup.

Keg King Ball Lock Disconnects – $3.99

William’s Brewing has Keg King’s lineup of ball lock Quick Disconnects.

Here’s the deal – in my opinion, CM Becker QDs are the best around.  There are knock offs or off-brands that do work, but just don’t seem (again IMO) to be as good.

Enter Keg King, they are making some pretty stellar stuff at great prices.  I ordered their QDs from William’s and took a look.  They appear to be similar quality to CM Becker at a better price.  I’ll report back over time, but, upon first looks, these are another home run for Keg King.

Note: William’s has had a bit of a problem keeping this in stock.  I had planned on posting about these earlier, but there were stock problems.  As of this posting, they are available again, but check William’s Brewing for up to the minute price and availability.
