Default Allagash Grand Cru yeast

I'm thinking of re-culturing the yeast from a 750ml bottle of Allagash Grand Cru for a batch of Grand Cru that I want to brew.

Has anyone had any success with this yeast? The reason I am asking is, I understand that some breweries protect thier proprietary yeast strains in bottle-conditioned beers by using another yeast for the bottle conditioning. I don't know if Allagash is one of these.

Thanks in advance!

make a test starter with the harvested yeast..let it run through and taste it..see if it has some of the same properties or not
