Default Hops stuck in my keg dip tube

I though I was careful but some hops must of made it into my keg. I force air down the out tube and it frees it up for a glass but the next glass its klogged and the beer creeps out. Any helpful tips.
Thanks,
Jeremy

you can pull you dip tube and cut a 1/2" off of it. You can transfer to another keg. You can try 50 PSI but I am not sure that will work, I use it to clear kegs of yeast all the time But I am not sure it will get past the poppit. Maybe a looooong stainless spoon?
Good luck w/ that one.

When that happened to me I just racked to another keg and placed a mesh straining bag around the auto siphon to make sure it didnt go into the next keg.

Thanks, I ended up transfering it to a new keg. I will have to get some kind of screen to put on the end of the dip tube.
