Upgrading Kegland BlowTie v1 Spunding Valve to Digital!

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 fermentation 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

BlowTie v1 & v2!

The original v1 Kegland v1 BlowTie & v2. Both are DuoTight compatible. The biggest difference is v2 has an integrated gauge, where v1 required an add-on gauge.

Upgrading BlowTie v1 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.

BlowTie v1 did not have an integrated gauge. It used a tee fitting to connect a keg QD to the PRV.

KL18081 can be used to upgrade BlowTie v1 to digital

Also available as a combo pack with a Kegland Ball Lock QD – Digital Keg Pressure Tester

My build is also upgraded with a Kegland DuoTight Ball Lock QD

Upgrading this assembly is as easy as swapping out the gauge. Since this is a DuoTight connection, no tools are needed.Side view of upgraded assembly
