Or you can spund and the beer will be carbed, when it is finished fermenting, hows that for fast?. Without any added oxidation to boot! 

Spunding was always a guessing game for me as well ...and I never quite got it. I either transferred to the spund Keg too soon (overcarbonating) or too late (undercarbing). Hence the desire for more control.

Oxygen uptake is always a concern. If I close transfer into a properly purged keg, purge a carbonation apparatus with CO2 (regardless of a keg lid or inline design) I figure I should be good.

I like this attitude:


You are going to love it. I made one out of some spare parts last year and it works great. Also, don't worry about the "quick carb" naysayers. There is absolutely nothing wrong with carbbing your beer quickly. It doesn't change anything except for how long you have to wait to drink your beer!

How does spunding too early leave you overcarbed?  Doesn't the pressure relief setting take care of that problem?

You’d think, but evidently not in my valve’s case. (Most likely operator error)
