Was in such a hurry to get to work I just realized I filed the keg to the rim! Should I be worried?

If your gas system has a functional check valve (and note, that's not a manual gas shut-off valve, it's a "back-flow preventer") between the quick disconnect and the regulator, then you're probably ok.

If you don't have a check valve, be very careful about putting pressure on the keg and then releasing any pressure at the regulator end of the gas line, otherwise beer will shoot up the gas line, and if it makes it to the regulator you'll have to tear it down and clean it out...

Cheers!

Use big slurpee straw to drink uncarbed beer down below gas dip tube.

I was worried about not having space for co2 to pressurize the tank?
