Tips for Setting Spunding Valve Pressure
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.
Why a Spunding Valve?
There are loads of homebrew related applications for a Spunding valve ranging from pressurized ferementation to naturally carbonating to fixing over carbonated beers and lots more. Check out our resource post on the subject. It’s arguably the go-to resource on the Internet on the subject
Setting Spunding Valve Pressure
When setting desired pressure… start higher than your desiged set point and slowly work your way down. As the valve gets close to where it is going to eventually settle, it slows down the release of gas. Working your way slowly down, helps you hit your desired pressure without passing it (going too low).
Here I’m dialing in my desired pressure. Also pictured: Thermapen Mk4 [Review].
