Spunding Valve Build: “Cheapest Option”

Thank you to /u/workaccount32 on reddit for this photo

A Spunding Valve allows you to maintain a set pressure.  If pressure in the vessel exceeds the set point, it is expelled.  It generally consists of an adjustable PRV valve, a tee, a gauge and a way to connect to your keg.  Read lots and lots more about Spunding Valves, ways to use them and different build options on our Spunding Valve Resource Post

Cheapest Option:  Generally speaking, the brass variations of the fittings featured in our various Spunding Valve builds are probably going to be the most economical route to go.  This is a general statement and may not always be the case.  Check product pages for current prices and availability.
