I have a beer fermentating in a Corny, and I'm ready to carb and drink it. I have Isinglass finings. When should I add them before force carbing?

Also, Can I still use the yeast cake for fermenting another beer?

i would guess you can pour the yeast cake from a tap into a jug or something and repitch it, i'd do that before adding the finings, otherwise you'll have all that junk in with the yeast/trub. I guess the finings should be done in 4-5 days, but maybe wait a week... are you sure you even need them?

Well, it's a lager, and still pretty cloudy and yeasty flavoured.
How would I remove the trub, before adding the finings? It's been lagering for a few weeks now. I don't want to disturb the settlement.
My plan was to add finings, leave it to work, then rack it off and reuse the trub. What would the used finings do if they were added to a new beer?
