Default Cornie Storage

Ok, I have just ordered my first two cornies to start kegging. I was wondering if it would be ok if I stored full cornies on their sides in the fridge? If so, what would happen if I pressured them to 30 PSI with CO2 first?

It won't hurt and putting pressure on them first guaranties they are sealed.

if it is just for storage, they should be fine, just make sure you don't have any leaks, or you will have 5 gallons to clean up in the fridge...

if you plan on carbonating while they are on their side, i would highly recommend getting inline check valves for the gas line, as it is easy for beer to back up in to the line and possibly destroy your regulator.

I was planning on putting 30 PSI on the cornie, removing the co2 line then placing them in the fridge on their sides.
