Hi, I would you recombinant Protein G sepharose to make antibody affinity column in your case because the albumin binding site in Protein G is deleted in it. If you still have some albumin you might try anti-albumin affinity chromatography to get rid off albumin but I haven't done this & so I am not sure whether it is practical to do it.  
Regarding regeneration, you can wash with acidic and alkaline buffers 3x alternatively. 
Good luck.
