Default Keg hopping help needed

This is my first try at this. I went to transfer this beer to my serving keg tonight and I got very little/ it stopped. I used 1.5oz of whole leaf hops about 5 days ago. I assume that my dip tube is clogged, I've tried shaking the keg with no help.

What do I do now? Please help

you might have to dismantle the keg tube and blow out the hops from the pickup tube. leaf will plug it, so you're on the right track.

Next time use a muslin bag - I dry hop in the keg all the time. Taking out the tube is no big deal, just inscrew it, take it out and clear it, and put it back - 10 minutes tops.

You don't even have to open the keg. Just relieve the keg pressure, remove the beverage out post and then pull the dip tube.
