Discharging a capacitor involves placing a load across its terminals so that the stored energy is dissipated safely. The load is typically a wirewound power resistor, although a mains light bulb can also be used. If a voltmeter is connected in parallel, you can also see the residual voltage reduce until it is close to zero (although it will probably never actually be exactly zero).
Maybe a safety sticky under hardware Brink?
