Default Dry hop transfer fkup

Seems I transferred quite a bit of dry hop turn into my keg. So much that it clogged my dip tube. I racked it to another keg, but can't get the last gallon or so thru my siphon. Any ideas on how to save this beer?

you can try switching the posts and push co2 through the liquid diptube to see if it will clear out the blockage or remove the liquid post and diptube and clean it out manually, sanitize and put back on. if you can place a screen or mesh bag etc over the end it should help you avoid more debris

Here's a thought;how about putting a hop sack over the end of the dip tube when transfering to another keg? The same way folks tie a hop sack over their siphon tube when racking?
