That depends on your temp of course. If you have it in a frig then 12 psi will get it done. Four days, some people get it done but most people will wait seven. I wait for a full seven. To answer your first question, yeah purge just a little and that will lower the presure.

Actually, the 20 psi for 4 days perfectly carbonates the beer. I then purge and recharge to 10 psi for drinking. That's actually not my question. I'm all set with that stage. No real need to forced carbonate in a fridge for seven days so the 12 psi issue isn't one I need to deal with.
My question is, if I have a 2 keg system, and have a couple of backup kegs, how best to store them after the forced carbonation described above? Keep em at 20 psi, drop them to 10-12 psi or what? Sounds like Mikey is saying I should store at 10-12 psi.
