i typically use a plate filter at ~5-7 psi, but blichmann claims it should only be pressurized to 3 psi. i noticed you said you use 4-5psi. does anyone know what at pressure the relief valve actually starts to bleed off?

LOL have you seen John's "brew room" lets just say he has a bar bigger than a lot of real bars and has a 10 tap beer tower

So does that pressure relief valve just make it so you don't have to manually open the pressure valve yourself while the keg is filling?

Yes but there is also one on the lid hatch of the conical to prevent overpressurizing the conical which is what in talking about

In case anyone else is interested in doing something similar, this DID work for me using a plate filter with 7um pads. It took about an hour, but I went slowly intentionally because I wanted to make sure I could do the whole batch on one set of pads. It could probably go faster, but I just set it up and checked on it every 10-15 mins or so once I had a feel for the transfer rate. I turned the regulator up until the gas just started flowing, then set the pressure relief on the kegs so I could see the beer moving.

Just wondering, what is the benefit of having the pressure relief valve vs. just connecting a gas connect with the port open?

Probably not much.. But I do like to hear it 'whistle' as it fills and I know it's hit the short gas in dip tub as soon as it stops whistling and starts sputtering beer.

I also do this to transfer commercially kegged been into corneys but set it to around 15 psi at the sankey end and around the same, but just barely less on the corney end so everything stays under pressure..
