I plan on doing this for a week or two then closing it all off with it still set to 30psi or so tell October for conditioning.

Thanks all for your input.
30 psi will get you a well carbed cider, but if you bring the pressure back down to 12-14 for serving then it will lose carbonation until it reaches the same level of carbonation you would have achieved by just initially carbonating at 12-14. It's simple physics. The gas in your cider wants equilibrium, so it will eventually settle on what pressure you set it to. 30psi cider put under 12 psi pressure = 12 psi cider once equilibrium is reached. I guess I just don't see the point of highly carbonating a beverage only to bleed most of it off. It's best just to carbonate your beverage to the pressure you intend to serve it at.
