Yeah, thus the co2 tire inflator. I see people have used these with corny kegs as well for keeping the beer from going flat if using a beerengine, and for dispensing if using a regular tap. 5psi shouldn't effect the beer flavor, at least I wouldn't think so anyway.

Aren't cask ales fully naturally carbonated then vented 24 hours prior to serving with a vented spile to bring the CO2 levels down? Since I keg with cornys, I just release the pressure 6 hours prior to the Real Ale Events we have here and serve with the corny upside down through a homemade beer engine.

That's OK if you drink the beer all in one go or within a day or so. The problem is with a keg that gets consumed at a more leisurely pace over several weeks or months.

1) the beer will slowly go flat- really flat
2) there is the risk of oxydation as air enters the keg to replace the beer

Giving it a little blast (1 or 2 PSI) of CO2 is a good compromise.
