Default Lager in Corny?

I have read a few topics relating to lagering in corny kegs after final gravity has been reached. My question is do I push a small amount of CO2 into the keg to seal the lid and then disconnect the CO2 supply or what?

That is what I did and it worked great. I put about 10 PSI in there and even after 30 days it had enough pressure to keep it sealed. I hit it with another 10 PSI after the first 30 days, left it for another month and then connected it to carb up.

I seal the lid with 25-30 lbs. & then lager on CO2. That way it's ready to drink after it's done lagering. Cheers!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

Yep. Seal the lid with around 30 psi. Pull the d-ring to purge the oxygen out a couple of times, and your golden.
