I am trying to open up a corny that's got beer under pressure inside it, but the pressure relief valve appears to be stuck. No matter how hard I pull on it, it won't budge.

Any ideas on getting this thing open? I kinda don't want to kill myself in the process.

Take the hose off the inlet GAS valve and press down on the valve with a screwdriver. Or, just hook a gas hose that isn't connected to the tank and let the pressure out with the hose.
