I made this, found out it was called a spunding valve and then saw one in BYO. I love how it fits in with my setup. I use blow-off CO2 from primary to purge my secondary/serving keg and then tap this valve to the keg when full. I have mine set to 14 psi and bleed to 12 psi after it is finished. I like this because I am using a lot less CO2 in bottle form and I am getting better carbonation results. I also enjoy that if sediment ever was a problem for more than a couple of beers when serving, that I could buy a filter and simply transfer under pressure to another keg and have crystal beer. I know not everyone will find this of use, but I have and wanted to share my experience with it.

Todd, I too was once in the rush that you appear to be in. I found an excellent solution though, brew like mad! That way once you've waited the initial few weeks, there's always a ready supply of delicious beer!

I never have enough beer and I brew 16 gallons. I am scouting more kegs to enlarge my storage so I eliminate that problem in my future. Brew, brew, brew!

Sorry, I keep hearing a lot of opinions that it won't work but no one is saying they tried it or know anyone who tried it with negative results.
Yes, you are correct, but I am talking fermentation not carbonation. One has to finsh before the other can start.

sorry guys this whole thing started not from being in a hurry as everyone thought. I went to tour some local breweries and they are all working to natural carb to some extent to save gas.

I have not tried it at all and probably won't.

last time i kegged a beer i put the air corny ball lock on the out(it kinda fits...) on the keg and turned on the air. I would shake the keg and stop and i could hear the bubbles coming out of the bottom of the dip tube. Shake it more and more bubbles. In 10 min I WAY over carbonated that keg of beer. oops... ya, in 10 min after kegging I could drink a full glass of (warm) carbonated beer.
