I have a question about sugar priming in a cornelius keg.

After I purge the keg with CO2, do I need to bleed off the pressure, or should the keg still be under some pressure during the conditioning?

THank you

why are you bothering priming with sugar if you've got c02 hooked up already?

it won't matter either way, the keg will be under pressure very shortly from the yeast and sugar.

Unless you primed with way too much sugar then no, you don't want to bleed after the fact. That pressure is what is carbing your beer.
