I don't see why not. They offer a spunding valve that is adjustable from 0-100psi and has a pressure gauge on it. It also has a ball lock gas in connector.

Yeah, I wish I had bought that instead but already have the pressurizer. I do have an extra CO2 tank and regulator, so I figured I could just leave it set at 10-12 PSI and just let it do it's thing.

Posted this before, but thought I'd do so again as we're discussing pressurized ferments. Quite a simple build, and wasn't too dear.

Since we're talking about pressurizing, here's a thread I wrote up on how I do it in my Brewhemoth.

Bottom line is, feel free to spund/force carb if you're not dry hopping. If you are dry hopping and need to filter enroute to the keg, then the carbonation creates some serious foaming in the line/keg, which may effect head retention.

I love mine, and as many have said above, the way I use it (under pressure) nothing else compares. Also the guys at brewhemoth are super easy to work with on customizations, and in my case it only extended build time by a week.

My hemoth arrived on Friday, so now I need to start getting together the tri clamp fittings and cip system. The only thing I wasn't expecting is bare tubing on the IC. What do most people use here?

What size tubing do you use? I can't find a spec on that pump and I'm guessing it's either 3/4 or 1/2" but I can't tell which.

You want to match gasket size to the ferrule size when ordering correct? This is my first time working with tri clover fittings and I'd hate to order the wrong gaskets. Any reason to choose Silicone over EPDM or vice versa?

I used 1 1/4" inside diameter hose.

Did you find anything nasty in this ebay pump? I once bought a Lowes sump pump for a CIP attempt, and it spit up all kinds of lubricants and oils which I would not want in my fermentor. Just checking before I pull the trigger, thanks!
