Well, here is my 7 day grain-to-glass experiment:

Day 1: Brew pale ale, pitch yeast (S-04), add an ounce of dry hops, attach spunding valve set at about 6psi
Day 4: put in fridge to cold crash, hook up the C02, set to 30 psi
Day 5: test C02 level
Day 6: transfer cold, carbonated beer under pressure to serving keg, with the spunding valve put on the gas port of the serving keg to prevent foaming
Day 7: serve at meeting...  If its good.

Edit: this was very good beer at 6 days, and the keg was drained about 10 days later.


One of the best pale ales I've had to date was 7 days old, brewed by JohnQ using his interpretation of my Lite Summer Ale recipe (he doubled the hops).

Question. When I'm carbing the beer up to 30psi, do I do so in the out tube? or should i take off the valve and carb to via the in valve to 30psi and then re-attach. If I hook it up to the out valve, will beer shoot up into my CO2?

definately take the spunding valve off, and use that port. Otherwise the potential for a beer gyser is too great. At that point, you really don't need the spunding valve anyways, since it should be done.
