Acidrain,
Good thinking but, yes, I did spray the top of the keg with Starsan and there was no leak.

This particular valve has exactly 3 1/2 turns in it before everything falls out:

(Incidentally, this arrangement DID leak -from the nipple connecting the gauge- when I first started looking at it. I took everything apart and carefully re-did all the connections with teflon. I'm 100% confident the connections should not now leak. The (slow) leak is coming from the valve itself).

Pickles,
Perhaps it works for what morebeer.com advertize it for - if you do the beer filtering transfer and then immediately remove the valve.

Still a bit of a mystery. It shouldn't leak but it does.

Cheers!

Spunding Valve Construction For Corny Keg
 
1 Attachment(s)

I recently bought the same spunding valve from more beer only the pin lock version. After reading the recent posts about the trouble Octavius is having I decided to test mine out before I use it to naturally carb my beer in the keg. Mine works fine. With the valve completely closed it didn't bleed off any CO2 at 20psi. I had to unscrew the valve a lot before it would start to bleed at all. I have it set to just south of 15psi and will leave it on there for a few hours to see what happens.

Octavius it appears that your valve is defective but it is supposed to function how you expect not what the moron from more beer is claiming. Sales guys should never F with an engineer. If you haven't already try some keg lube on the rubber seal and see if that fixes it.

I searched high and low for that, I'm not sure it's available. I ended up brazing a barbed compression fitting to the side of a tee.Attachment 175348

I used the morebeer spunding valve and it is very difficult to set a specific pressure. And once you do get it set, just looking at it will throw it off.

I ended up ordering the valve and gauge recommended in the main pressure ferment thread and that works so much better.
