I got mine put together. I think it's funny that the gauge says "it" on the face.

Is there any reason people are using a pressure relief valve rather than a pressure regulator such as this: http://www.amazon.com/Bostitch-BTFP7232 ... +regulator ?

That particular one seems fairly coarse in terms of pressure setting. You would probably want much finer control up to about 1 bar, and not need anything beyond 2 bar. Ideally, a stainless option would be nice, too.

Are most folks happy with the 0.8 bar setting on their spunding setups? Is there much need to have flexibility up or down? If so, what would be ideal pressure levels? What kind of control is ideal? (0.7, 0.75, 0.8, 0.85, 0.9)

I vary mine depending of beer and style. Up to 30 psi for ales.

The reason I am asking is that the reviews for the pressure relief valve it seems that most people are using from amazon vents pressure, but isn't very precise either. Some mention it venting all pressure and then reseating others mention that the vent fluctuates. What are users who have this valves experience? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007GD ... merReviews

Also, is stainless just incase krausen or beer makes it's way up to the regulator?

In regards to stainless, it would give piece of mind I guess. Something that would not rust, and could be sanitized/cleaned in all of the agents we're already using without concern of leaching of anything.

I have found these to be flaky and don't like them, nor the potential for gumming them up with blow-off. Once I get around to it, I'm going to check into the ones Weizenberg posted. I want to find the right tool for this job.

Since BrewHardware seems to be out of stock, I've found another source for the FFL->MPT connection in stainless:
