Yes, trying to balance the flow rate and foaming.

It doesn't say it's adjustable. Is there a set screw in the top?
Did you use the 20lb spring?
Thanks for the links!

I would check with morebeer to make sure they didn't change the part.

Got one of those prelick - growler adapters, and tried it with my CPF.
worked perfectly with serving pressure (12 PSI)

This is brilliant!

One question, though:

The Stainless Gas Pressure Relief you've cited is rated at 55 PSI blow off. Did you modify this to allow CO2 escape at lower pressure or is it used strit out of the box?

The valve is adjustable 0-20 psi, straight from the box, same as the one in morebeer's filler.

Cheese: I'm having a heck of a time sourcing SS parts. Do you have a parts list and suppliers, please?

SWMBO has ordered a CPBF as my next DIY project so I can bottle her cider...

You can see the parts list in the first photo.
They were bought in Israel, but you can find most of it in stainless on Ebay.

The bottom part is 1/4 npt to 5/16 barb
The upper brass part is drilled with 3/8 bit so the tube can pass trough it.
