BlowTie Complete Kit (Diaphragm Spunding Valve)

  • 1 x pushfit FFL to 5/16" fitting
  • 1 x 5/16" Push in 0-15psi Gauge (different to 0-40PSI shown in photo)

Pressure Fermentations
With pressurised fermentation becoming ever more popular it has become increasingly important to have a method of regulating and controlling this residual pressure from the fermentation process.  The BlowTie has been designed specifically for this reason.

Pressure Transfers
When transferring from keg to keg, keg to bottle, or fermenter to keg it's often a good idea to have head pressure in the keg you are filling into especially if you are transferring a beverage that is carbonated. For this reason the BlowTie can consistently control this head pressure giving you more consistent results and without losing carbonation in the process.

Traditional spunding valves that use a simple spring against a seal are flawed right from the beginning as the physical aspects of the design dictate that you will have a significant difference between the opening pressure and closing pressure during operation.  Brewers have tolerated this imperfection for long enough and now you can control these pressures far more accurately.

The BlowTie has been made completely differently taking advantage of a diaphragm to actuate the sealing mechanism that will release pressure from the pressure vessel with much more accurate control pressure.

Instructions:
Use the yellow adjustment knob to control the pressure coming out of the pressure vessel.  Clockwise is higher pressure and anticlockwise is lower pressure.
We would recommend gassing a keg to a known pressure e.g. 15psi then attach your Blow Tie Kit to the keg and adjust to 10psi.


Specifications:
1. Made from food grade acetal
2. Stainless screws
3. 8mm (5/16") push on both sides
4. 0-40psi pressure rating

Please note: The black joiners are a semi-permanent fitting. You will not be able to remove the fittings easily. If you would like to have a completely removable fitted kit we would suggest using EVABarrier 4mm ID or 5mm ID hose as the joining pieces.

Brewing frequently asked questions

How long does it take to brew beer?

The time it takes to brew beer can vary, but on average, the process takes about 4 to 6 weeks. This includes the various stages such as malting, mashing, boiling, fermenting, conditioning, and bottling. However, some beer styles may require longer aging periods for optimal flavor development.

Is home brewing worth it?

Many people find home brewing to be a rewarding and enjoyable hobby, allowing them to create unique and customised beers. It provides a deeper understanding of the brewing process and offers the opportunity to experiment with different ingredients and styles. Additionally, home brewing can be cost-effective in the long run compared to purchasing craft beers. However, it requires time, effort, and a certain level of commitment. Whether it's worth it ultimately depends on one's passion for brewing and the satisfaction derived from the process and the end product.

Is home brewing legal?

Home brewing for personal use is generally legal, and there is no need for a specific license as long as certain conditions are met. Home brewers are allowed to produce beer, wine, and cider for personal consumption. However, there are limits on the amount that can be brewed without a license. As of January 2022, the limits were 100 litres for beer and 100 litres for wine per household.

It's important to stay informed about any updates or changes in the regulations, so it's advisable to check with local authorities or brewing associations for the most current information regarding home brewing laws in the UK. Always ensure that you comply with the relevant regulations and guidelines to enjoy home brewing within the legal framework.
