I want to use polyclar to settle the yeast out of my current brew's secondary. However, after kegging same, I'd like to reuse the yeast cake to try to lower the terminal gravity of an old barleywine which I feel never quite finished fermenting.
Will the previous use of polyclar cause the yeast to be too flocculant to make it worth my time?

I would prefer to use the primary yeast, but you can use the secondary yeast even with the finings.

In anticipation of doing this, I racked to secondary after only 48 hours of primary fermentation. Basically, 90% of the yeast was still in suspention. All I did was get rid of most of the hop/protein trub.
I expect to have a massive quantities of clean, healthy yeast.
