So I undid the tri clamp holding the valve on and WHOOSH!!!! hops and yeast everywhere. No kidding the first thing that came to mind was ...

I stupidly put about 2 quarts of water in to try and dislodge it. It went whoosh when I took off the try clamp.

I think we've all made an epic mess or three during our homebrewing careers.    :D

Oof. Yeah that stuff is better in the compost heap or trash can. Just snake it, you’ll be fine. Hot PBW solution or Oxyclean might break it up too
