Yeah. I do this with one of my kegs.

Sure, either or both. The poppet only seals when there's no disconnect attached; once the QD is installed the sealing function moves to the outer post o-ring...

Cheers!

Thanks guys. Is there a gasket in the QD or does the gasket around the keg post serve as the only leakage stop (both gas and out)?

The post o-ring is all there is making the seal with the QD...

Cheers!
