I am def a fan of letting ones beer sit in the primary for 3 weeks but after that it's ready to go straight into the keg. Set the keg to 30psi for 2 days, dial down to serving pressure and DRINK! At least for IPA's...

Lagers I condition (lager) at near freezing, say 36 degrees or so.

I use 20 psi to do this and also to seal the lid after purging. You can then just set the keg aside. I have an extra CO2 tank that I use to carbonate my kegs while they condition. That way when a space comes available in the keezer, I have a carbed/conditioned beer that just needs chilled. But, it's not a necessity, I'm just lucky to have an extra tank. The beer won't carbonate if you disconnect the gas.
That works???!!
