Yes, purge the keg, lower to serving psi and drink. It's just that simple. BierMuncher is just about spot on with what I do (I did follow his posts when I started kegging). 30PSI for about 36 hours on a ferm temp keg just going into the fridge. Drop the pressure, purge and drink.

Replace plastic disc with an o-ring better seal no leaks.

Well, after several misadventures, the beer is finally kegged. First I discovered that my kegerator was designed for a different style keg; three trips to homebrew shops and Lowes later, and it's finally done.

I have grave misgivings about the sanitation, though. I'm kinda worried it's not cleaned properly. Well, I'll find out Tuesday...

I am sure it will be fine. Personally i do the set it and forget it method of carbing. Set it at 11 psi and wait 10 days and it is typically ready to drink with the correct amount of carbonation. I just dont bother fiddling with the regulator.
