What is bunging?
In the brewery industry, bunging is a process often used by brewers to naturally carbonate their beer. A device called a bunging/spunding valve is attached to tanks late in fermentation, when most of the sugars in the wort have been processed by the yeast.
How does a bunging valve work?
A bunging valve works like a pressure release valve. It comprises an airlock-like valve, which can be adjusted to dial in the exact pressure that it will hold and has an integrated gauge that shows the tank’s pressure.
