That's what I did with all my kegs.
Even a force carb'd keg...when chilled for some time will have sediment at the bottom.
Naturally carbonated kegs even more so.
Dip tubes by design were meant to nearly touch the bottom of the keg so they could suck up every last drop of soda syrup. You don't really want that with beer (at least I don't).
If your dip tubes are straight, cut off 3/8" inch.
If your dip tubes are bent, simply remove it, put it over your knee and give the tube a slightly sharper bend.
