Hey, what type of relief valve is that? Is it adjustable?

The thumbscrew on the end is adjustable - MoreBeer sells them, or at least used to sell them...

Looks quite similar to the one I recently bought from Northern Brewer, halfway down this page:

NORTHERN BREWER: Gas Hardware

I'm going to use mine to aid in transferring beer from commercial kegs to cornies to fit into my soon-to-be finished keezer.

You'd be suprised how fast it goes. One 5 gallon corny = 40 pints. That doesn't last long when a few "friends" show up...
Your not kidding I had 2 cases go already, and I was being cautious about giving them out.

I transferred 10 gallons of beer from my conical to two kegs this evening using this technique. It worked perfectly. Thank you John Beere.

Glad it worked out for you. I had originally considered building a storage unit that was about two feet tall that I could sit both Freezers on to gravity feed into kegs, but this is way easier. I haven't really worked out the amount of CO2 used, but it seems as if it is minimal.

It is amazing how minimal CO2 you use transferring. I am still wishing I could collect more of my vented CO2 from brewing. I guess that has been discussed to no end though, lol. I love not having to move full kegs of beer, I am getting a dolly with tracks so I don't have to move anything anymore.

if you're not lugging gallons of wort and beer around, how are you burning off all your consumption calories?!

I tend to think that between the praying (that everything goes right) and the stress (that everything goes right) you'd be suprised how many calories get burned.
