Why would you discharge it? Just put it on Storage mode

Thanks! Guess I should have explained why I want to go this way.....I had charged my new 3s lipo planning to go out and run my other car,but something came up and I could not go out and play,so I had to put it on my charger for 'storage" mode and it took like 2 hours.I am looking for some alternative to disharge this battery fast,but not too fast,so that I can keep track of the voltage using my cell checker plugged into the balance plug.
Since I never leave my lipo unattended,either charging or discharging, I just want a faster way to drain it.Thanks,Huck
