The Blow Tie Spunding Valve is used to release excess pressure on a pressurized fermenter or from a keg while doing pressure transfers. Thanks to the large surface area of the diaphragm, this style spunding valve is much more accurate than the poppet style. 8 mm Duotight fittings at both inlet and outlet make this unit perfect for use with EVABarrier 8 mm OD tubing.
The BlowTie 2 features an integrated pressure gauge so you can quickly and easily dial in your pressure setting. The analog gauge is removable and can be swapped out with a gauge of a different pressure range or it can be swapped out for the digital mini pressure guage.
Pressure fermentation is becoming more and more popular at the homebrew level, but in order to do it safely and accurately you need a way to release excess pressure. You'll pressurize your vessel to your desired psi, but once fermentation begins and those hungry, active yeast start creating CO2, the pressure inside the vessel will increase. Attach a spunding valve and set it to your desired pressure, and it will blow off when the pressure gets too high and close up again when it's back to your desired psi.
Even if you don't have a pressurizable fermenter, you may have done pressure transfers from keg to keg during filtering or after fining. During pressure transfers, it's a good idea to have a bit of head pressure in the receiving keg, especially if you're transferring beer that is already carbonated. Having a spunding valve in place will allow you to consistently control the head pressure and give you more consistent results, without losing carbonation in the process.
The BlowTie spunding valve comes with 8 mm Duotight fittings on the inlet and outlet, and we recommend using it with EVABarrier 8 mm OD tubing. You'll also need the flare Duotight fitting in order to attach it to a ball lock or pin lock disconnect. Dialing in your desired pressure is even easier with the BlowTie 2, thanks to the integrated pressure gauge. Simply start with the adjustment knob fully closed, then slowly open it until the gauge reading matches your desired pressure setting.

Excellent product, easy to setup and great results.
I can now use my kegerator for homebrew !
The kegs we in good shape and obviously had some new parts installed. Very happy!
This Keg is just what I was looking for and at a fair Price. I have not used it yet, I know it holds pressure because it was pressurized when delivered, must have been hot in the truck, always release pressure before opening. As far as dents to three or four or six very minor to me over all happy fly Thanks Dave for calling, I forgot to write my street in my shipping address.
Dave was extremely helpful in getting me what I needed and shipping it very quickly. Items arrived as advertised!
Great piece of equipment, and worked and adapted well to our wine storage project.
Corny Keg 5 Gallon Ball Lock Keg - SS - 2 Pack
nice tank, almost like new, recent test, quick ship, good price, would buy again.
This was a Christmas gift for my father in law. I gave a once over it looked great! Shipping was super fast! I will definitely be ordering again form here
I tried three varieties of Hopzoil, and each has a delicious, prominent flavor. It’s easy to use and great quality. I highly recommend it to any home brewer or beer lover.
I use Corny Kegs to ferment my own Apple Cider Mead....I was wanting to make an extra batch for the Holidays and decided to get two fermenters going...Unfortunately, I didn't have the fittings I needed and was unsure that I could make enough on time. They shipped my parts the next day and arrived with plenty of time to make enough for my guests.
