Just disconnect the gas. There will be enough pressure left to dispense the last few pints.

I turn the gas off to mine when I know it's getting towards the end. Saves a bit of CO2 by not filling an empty keg with it.

I don't find sediment disturbing at all wink...

I find it reassuring that fermentation has occurred.

I get at least 2 or 3 and there is still gas in the keg when I pull the relief valve when completely empty. If it really slows down you can always squirt a bit more in.
