Thanks for the info.
I think I have a bum Corny for doing pressurized ferments in.
It doesn't seem to seal properly.
That one may be sold back to my LHBS.

Coming to boil on a Imperial Blonde Ale that i plan on doing my maiden closed-system pressurized ferment in the cornie keg with.

Very excited to move to this process as my means of primary fermentation.

Absolutely. I believe that the sanke path is surest.
Trying this in 5gal Corny kegs is sort of deviant.
WortMonger has a monster thread running on the process, but rather than make you read through that (It was around 70 pages long when I read it last year), here is a link to the wiki page:

They moved it to make it harder to find. A search on the p/n found it. I updated the link.

I just have a quick stupid question regarding the spunding valve. So you set your desired psi level and the spunding valve will automatically release the pressure once it gets in excess? Or do you have to manually release the excess pressure? Thanks

Anything over your set pressure is released. If you set the keg to 5 PSI, it will stay at 5 PSI and vent off the excess.

I realize this is an old thread but....

Any reason why something like this would not work? I'd hook it up to the ball lock disconnect's 1/4" MFL fitting

I'm not hip to spunding valves, but isn't the theory to let the fermentation set the "pressure"?

I don't think you could purpose the regulator for this, although I could be mistaken.

You basically want an adjustable P R V, me thinks.
