Taprite 740 regulator

I am setting up my first heavily planted tank and I had a question about the taprite 740. I am setting up a 10 gallon with medium light (x2 28W CFLs retrofitted into a light strip). I will be using mineralized topsoil (Mineralized Top Soil Substrate) capped with eco-complete. Not exactly sure what plants yet.

So, I was given the taprite series 740 regulator (single stage/ single guage) and a 5# tank and it was previously used on a beer keg. I was hoping to find out how I can make it usable for my 10 gallon. I plan to buy a nice dual stage regulator in a couple months, but in the meantime I would like to get this one going. Can I use it safely? What would I need to make this happen?
