    I have a pin lock keg that doesn't have a manual pressure release valve. I always use the gas poppet to release pressure, but now I just got a new CO2 regulator that has a manual pressure release valve. When I turn off the gas to my tank, can I vent my keg using the pressure release on the regulator? Or should I just use the poppet?
