Some carbonation cap models are universal fit and some work only with gas posts.  For draft line cleaning projects to work well, at least in my opinion, the carb cap that’s used needs to be universal. As of this posting, the product page says this works with both liquid and ball lock posts.  Check the product description for current specs.

KegLand Core 360 Mini C02 Regulator – Works w/Sodastream OR 16 gram cartridges – Save $25!

KegLand Core 360 Mini C02 Regulator from William's Brewing

KegLand Core 360 Mini C02 Regulator from William’s Brewing

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

The Mini 360 Core Actuator Regulator from KegLand is extremely versatile, and can be used with either a Sodastream® C02 Bottle or a 16 gram C02 cartridge.

Unlike other regulator designs, the Mini 360 Core does not puncture or open the C02 cartridge or cylinder until after the C02 source is screwed onto the regulator. After securing the C02 source to the regulator, you then tighten the plunger which pierces the cartridge, or opens the Sodastream pin. The result is no wasted gas when you install a cartridge.

It also has a choice of two disconnect orientations, and features a DuoTight compatible 6.5mm hose barb outlet which can also accept ¼” inner diameter gas tubing. Also included is a Female Flare outlet so you can screw this regulator directly onto a threaded Ball Lock Disconnect if you prefer.

The pressure relief valve releases at 65 PSI, but you can switch this out for a different range by using our red 35 PSI relief valve or our 100 PSI grey relief valve.

The Mini Gauge is heavily protected with brass on all sides to prevent damage when dropping. The gauge itself is a standard KegLand Mini Gauge, and you can swap out another KegLand Mini gauge with a 2mm hex wrench if you would prefer a different range than 0-60 PSI.

Includes:

1 x Mini 360 Core Actuator Regulator with Sodastream® thread

1 x 360° 6.5mm duotight compatible hose barb

1 x 360° FFL Fitting for MFL Disconnects

1 x Port end cap

1 x 65psi Green PRV

1 x 16 Gram Threaded C02 Cartridge Adapter

Note: This also fits Leland® brand 74 gram threaded cartridges if you order our adapter item G60. It does not fit 74 gram Brewer’s Edge® C02 cartridges.

Note: Pictured Sodastream® 60 Liter C02 Bottle not included, these are available at many home stores and also exchanged at many stores.


 

This is… DuoTight compatible and it works with Sodastream tanks and 16 gram cartridges!  It’s worth noting that DuoTights are not a requirement if you’re not currently using that great system.

  • For a limited time this is on sale for $54.99. That’s whopping $25 off list.
  • Shipping is free or reasonably priced flat rate to addresses in the contiguous US depending on your order size for most items.

Most of the smooth wall design make up for it by including a notch that you can put a wrench on tighten and loosen.

Get Ready for Summer Get-Togethers… Using a Keg as a CO2 Source for Portable Serving!

This technique uses an economical inline secondary regulator to utilize a spare keg (or growler)as a CO2 source to serve a keg. I’m not suggesting this setup as a replacement for your kegerator CO2 tank.  You still need a standard CO2 tank. What this setup could be very useful for is as a replacement for those expensive little regulators or injectors and expensive (considering how much CO2 you get) little CO2 cartridges. One inexpensive purchase allows you to pressurize and serve your keg on the go for little to nothing.

Side Note: I’ve wanted to do this for years.  There used to be a commercial sanke keg that had two chambers.  One was used as a pressure chamber and the other held beer.  I always wanted one of those.  The problem was that it was extremely expensive and I just couldn’t justify the expense. This magic little secondary regulator makes something similar easily possible.

The Hardware That Makes This Possible…

Kegland’s economical inline secondary regulators! As of this update there are three versions

Upgrade to Digital!

Kegland has released a digital gauge option that works with their great inline secondary regulator and BlowTie Spunding Valve.  They have also released a DuoTight version.

Primary intended Use… Multi-Pressure Serving

Maintaining multiple CO2 pressures in your kegerator gives you the ability to… keep kegs at different pressures.  This is a requirement to maintain different carbonation levels. It’s also handy if you want to force carbonate a keg more quickly, at a higher pressure, while maintaining your standard serving pressure on a keg that’s already being served or if you want to have a utility line for purging kegs and such.

Hands on Review: Kegland BlowTie Spunding Valve

Building a Digital Spunding Valve

Updated: 4/23/2024

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


Building a digital Spunding Valve is as simple as using a digital gauge in your Spunding Valve Build.

digital spunding valveI tried a couple different digital gauges and settled on this one – pictured in the assembly above.  The other gauge I tried was much more expensive and didn’t really work well.  It drifted wildly.  This was a reasonable price and has given me accurate and consistent readings.  This photo shows two gauges hooked up to the same keg – agreeing on PSI.


This article contains affiliate links. We may make a small percentage if you use our links to make a purchase. You won’t pay more and you’ll be supporting Homebrew Finds and more content like this. Thank you for your support!


The really nice thing about this digital gauge is the .1 PSI resolution.  That’s really handy if you’re using the gauge to try and find leaks.  It allows you to see pressure changes more quickly.

My gauge came with this user manual/specifications sheet – front | back.  One quick tip… the threads aren’t super long.  The first time I put this digital Spunding Valve together, I noticed the pressure dropping, again… the .1 PSI resolution is handy for spotting just this issue!  Anyway, I didn’t have the gauge quite tight enough and it was showing a slow leak.  Easy fix, I took the gauge off, put a couple extra wraps of teflon tape around it and tightened it a little more.  Whammo!

Suitable for applications ranging from 0-150 psi. Since this unit does not have a built-in pressure gauge, it can be used in the full pressure range without ever needing to purchase or swap out the gauge. We recommend using an adjustable relief valve/spunding valve on your keg to set the pressure.

This regulator is perfect for lowering your mains water pressure for use with the Continuous Soda Carbonator Keg Lid.

Specifications:

  • Pressure Range: 0–150 psi
  • Suitable for mains water pressure
  • Liquid and gas compatible
  • Easily disassembles for cleaning
  • 8mm (5/16″) Duotight fittings at both ends
  • Wall mountable
  • Made from non-corrosive acetyl, nitrile, and stainless parts

One of the questions that arises on these type of carb caps, is… does it work with both liquid and gas posts?  Some models are universal fit and some work only with gas posts.  For draft line cleaning projects to work well, at least in my opinion, the carb cap that’s used needs to be universal.  I’m happy to report that the one I received did indeed work with both liquid and ball lock posts.  Check product description for current specs.

Check out my Hands on Review of this great carb cap.

Carbonation Cap Tee Adapter… $2.99 + Related Reviews & Projects

Carbonation Cap Tee Adapter

Carbonation Cap Tee Adapter via William’s Brewing

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Make a ball lock keg out out of PET plastic bottles. Great for taking beer to a party or making your own mini keg system with a 2 liter soda bottle.

This tee piece enables you to attach both a liquid and gas ball lock disconnect to the bottle at the same time so you can essencially use a common PET bottle as a keg. Very handy with a two liter soda bottle, as you can get a short length of ¼” interior diameter silicone tubing, attach it to the top Carbonation Cap (not included), fill with beer, and put in the refrigerator, either upright or sideways.

Or if you have Nukatap or Intertap faucets on your draft system, make a draft system cleaner – fill a soda bottle with beer line cleaner, attach an optional ball lock adapter to the end of your Intertap/Nukatap Faucet, and open the faucet to force cleanser into your draft beer system and down the lines.

Note: This is for the tee piece only. You need a soda bottle with standard PCO 1881 thread, 2 item C35 Carbonation Caps, and some ¼” interior diameter tubing to complete your soda bottle keg conversion.


 

This tee in conjunction with compatible carbonation caps can convert PET bottles into mini kegs or for use flushing or cleaning draft lines.

Build a Spunding Valve! – How and Why

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.

Homebrewing Applications of a Spunding Valve

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Naturally and accurately carbonate beer right in the keg.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Fix over-carbonated beers.
  • 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.  The digital build, see below, is especially helpful for this task,  The digital gauge reads with .1 PSI resolution making pressure changes easy to spot.  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!
  • As an airlock for long term aging of beers.  Airlocks can run dry over time.  A Spunding Valve will not.
  • Utilize CO2 from fermentation for flushing kegs and fermenters.
