Default Franziskaner hefe

Does anyone know much about the yeast in this hefe.
Has anyone rescued it??
Is it even the same stuff they use to ferment or is it some other yeast they use for bottle conditioning/taste (either way its delicious).

German Hefe Weizens use a lager yeast when bottling.

I've saved some in the past and made a starter out of it, but it just coagulated in the bottom of my bottling bucket. I had to pour everything back into the bucket and let it settle out.

Not to hijack your thread, but to go along with your question: Where do breweries like Franziskaner, Paulaner and so on get there HW yeast? Have they been harvesting it from their beers for years and years?
