I was able to check it out on thursday before i headed out for a wedding. Its definitely a lot of sediment thats clogging the diptube etc. I think im actually going to have to rack the beer out and back in which i definitely dont want to do but im not wasting this batch haha.
To protect the beer when racking, I take my co2 tank and fill the vessels with gas. The Co2 is heavier than air, so as long as you don't pour it out or blow it out, it'll lay in the container. That layer will protect the beer while you are racking. I do it for carboys, kegs, buckets, whatever.
Does sound like you put it in the keg too soon though. Maybe need some whirlflock or other fining agents in the beer.
