Not directing this at you Coastarine- If you go through the trouble of brewing and properly aging a beer, what's one more week going to hurt? Please people, quit shaking, rolling and otherwise molesting your cornies. It's not worth it.
I'm a cornie molester.

Well, it was my first two batches, and I want to drink them! Seems to have worked, too.

I will be nice to the next two batches, they are lagers and will have to sit in the keg for a month, anyway. I will just hit them with about 14 psi the last week or so.

This is what I did last night- I had an Dry Irish Stout that I was done fermenting in a corny that I put a stainless steel 'Sure Screen' on the dip tube. Pressurized sanitized corny, pressurized my brew, out to out jumper, and bled my brew to the new keg. I kept venting for awhile after all the liquid was transferred, so that the CO2 was being injected through the out tube and bubbling up through my brew (I then blasted the in side with 30 and tossed it in my kegorator).

On a side not, man look at all the grog and yeast at the bottom of that keg! This was an experiment with the screen for the first time, but I am very anxious to see how clear this beer will be- I think I might be purchasing some more! (Northern Brewer)

Long time cornie molester, never had any problem with beer in the line. When you lay it on its side place it so the gas in is at the 12 0'clock position this will help prevent liquid from going back up the line.
Order of steps
1.Fill
2.Purge headspace
3.Chill overnight
4.Crank and shake
5.Let rest to stabilize
6.Relieve pressure to dispensing pressure and tap
7.DRINK
