I just kegged AHS toasted coconut porter and now my keg is clogged with coconut flakes. I get a dribble out of the tap no matter what the pressure is set at. I haven't even had a full glass of beer (criminal!).

My question, can I depressurize remove the dip tube and clean? I was going to sanitize a nylon bag and tie it around the end of the dip tube for a filter. Is that a bad idea?

Input please!

Yes, if your keg has a pull ring you can vent pressure that way or use a small blunt object to press in the gas poppet. You will need a wrench or socket to pull the beer fitting. I think most of them are around 13/16" or 7/8". Some are 6 point others are 12.
