What do you mean by check the pressure til around 20ish?
When you first hook up the gas, you'll hear a hissing sound from the regulator that subsides as it presssurizes. When you shake it, you'll hear it hiss some more and you'll see the gauge needle drop and slowly climb back up.
What's happening is the gas is dissolving into the liquid as you're shaking it, you're forcing it to equilibrium by allowing more gas/liquid contact. If you shake it and your needle doesn't move and you don't hear any more hissing, then you know it's at equilibrium and should be fully carbed assuming you're set to the correct temperature/pressure.
