Hit it with 30psi to seal the keg, then plug the valve. You should read 30psi. In the first couple days, this CO2 will go into solution, and the pressure will drop to something around 5psi. If your keg does not seal right, it might drop to 0. In that case, just hit it again with 30psi. After those couple days, the pressure will start rising due to the priming sugar. After 2 weeks or so, it stabilizes to something around 25psi.

If your goal is just to monitor pressure while priming in a keg, it will be enough. I saw a post where someone added the adjustable valve to the assembly from midwest as well.
they do have one that is adjustable http://www.midwestsupplies.com/ball-...e-w-gauge.html but out of stock

I've been to lazy to hunt down the parts. I'd love to buy two of these. Thanks for the tip.

This is a variable release valve, correct? It relieve pressure when over the designated PSI, correct?
