Default Reusing Yeast Slurry For Barleywine

Planning to make my first Barleywine in a few weeks. Rather than pitching onto a previous yeast cake I'll scoop some out according to whatever volume the Mr Malty calculator suggests. Is there likely to be a problem if the yeast I'm harvesting is from a Cream Stout?

I see none at all as long as it is a good yeast for a barley wine.

It's #1098 which the Wyeast web site lists as useable for English Barleywine.

That should be fine. I pitched my 999 barleywine right on the yeast cake from a previous brew and it worked wonderfully. I'll be doing the same for future big brews.
