Default Set it Forget it Question

I think this is the way I am going to go.
Do I need to hit it a few times with 30psi, or do I just simply hook my gas up and set it at my serving pressure and leave it alone?
Do I need to purge it at all in the next few weeks.
If someone could give me some detailed directions I would really appreciate it.
Thank you

Set it and forget it is just that. Set your pressure, vent for O2 then forget it for about three weeks. Many seem to get to the target volume in under that but mine seem to take three weeks unless I hit with 30lbs then reduce to serve pressure. The check valve maintains the pressure until absorption occurs then maintains serving pressure. That is my method and seems to get to target volume a little quicker.

I fill the keg. Purge the keg. Set it at 30 psi for a couple of days. Then I set it at serving pressure, 10 psi and drink..Always seemed to work for me..

Hit it once with 30 just to seat the lid & purge. Then turn down to your serving pressure and leave it.

Nope; no additional purging required after the initial purge.

Ah come on arturo and wild, we were all noobs a time or two. Some of us are not very computer literate and besides its the holiday season. HBT has always been like Ace hardware, "The Helpful Brewing Place".

Dude cmon, doesn't it get a little tiresome seeing the same questions asked 900 times? There is a search function for a reason. I'm not even mad about the question, just frustrated.

I feel ya, but...

The search function is more helpful than any comments from a single member.

I understand guys. Maybe I just go a little soft around the holidays. As an illiterate myself, it took a few months to find the advanced search function and almost gave up trying to use the HBT search due to the google returns that were provided. Once the advanced search was pointed out to me, I have used it exclusively.
BTW beercigars the advanced search appears at the bottom of the search drop down list and opens another page of options.
