So something's wrong with my keg and I'd rather just get my beer out before I ruin the beer trying to fix it. The issue is it won't pour and I have no idea why.

I've decided to bottle my brew instead, but I'm not sure how to get it into bottles. Is it safe to use fizz drops if the beer is already somewhat carbonated? I'm trying to keep CO2 in the tank to avoid oxidation until next weekend (when I'll next have time to bottle 50+ bottles) but I don't want them to be over carbed and explode when bottled. What would be the best approach to move all this stuff to bottles? Would force carbing and then bottling even work? I feel like I'd lose all the carbonation as I autosiphon into bottles.

There could be hops clogging the out post or possibly frozen beer in the line.

I’ve had both of these things happen.
