Thanks for your order Jeff! In the meantime you can disconnect the gas line from the keg, pop the gas release valve (assuming your keg has one), and then remove the dip tube to clean it to clear the blockage. Re-insert, try again. You may have to do this 2-3 times over a few days as more hops settle. (You may already know all this as you've seen why your pour's not working, but thought I'd mention it). The Hop Stopper Keg Editions make this all unnecessary of course. Thanks for your order! I definitely don't miss clogged dip tubes!

Yep the dip tube was so clogged I had to use some #12 copper wire to run it through! After the second try... I said screw this and transferred the beer to another keg. Lots of hops goodies down the drain though.
Just part of the learning process!
Oh ya the first hard lesson learned was on my first keg, force carbed... did NOT burp it and then when i hooked up the 12 psi gas.... the 35 psi gas in the keg won and sent beer within an inch of the regulator. _________________ Jeff
