Default Question: Cylinder pressure inside fridge?

Hey guys,

I've tested my system with the soapy water method and can't find any leaks but the pressure in my cylinder seems extremely low. It's a full 20lb. cylinder and overnight it chilled to about 40*F in the fridge. The pressure dropped to about 550 psi, which is just about the "order gas" mark. I think I may have read somewhere that this is normal but I'd like to be sure...

Thanks!

I'm a noob too kegging too. This happened to me a month ago and I also freaked out. I took it out of the fridge and the volume climbed back up.
