You'd have to use a "jumper" to go from keg liquid out tube to keg liquid out tube. It'd be really tough to put a muslin bag on a keg dip tube, (you could do it if you don't mind sticking sanitized hands in your beer.
Don't try to siphon carbonated beer, (ask me how I know
what a pain in the @$$!!!)....you'll just make a mess.
If you JUST put it under pressure, you might not be carbonated much, and then yes, you could siphon with a bag over the end of the siphon to catch crap.
Honestly, I wouldn't worry, and I'd just let it settle a little while. I doubt you will clog anything, (certainly won't clog your diptube, probably won't clog your poppet).
I did have a problem recently where I dry hopped in a keg with pellet hops loose. I figured the first pint would be pure hop sludge, and then clear beer. Instead, the 1.5 oz of hop sludge just clogged up the works, and I had to siphon it into a new keg. I lost 1 gal of beer in the process
. Before you waste beer, I'd go by the wait-n-see approach.
Pop the keg and add some gelatin if you want to help stuff settle out.
