I had to look up what beer an enhancer was.
I see that it's sugar so the question is did you at it before fermenting?
It looks like something you add prior to fermenting so there wouldn't be anything left now.
The other question is since you are putting it in a keg are you planning to naturally carbonate for to force carbonate?
Most people force carbonate so you don't need to add any sugars.
When you force carbonate you don't have so much problem with sediment.

Any fermentable sugars were fermented then. If you are naturally carbonating you will need to add sugar or DME.
If you are going to force carbonate, you don't need to add anything.
