Default Harvesting yeast/bugs from Cantillon?

I'm in the mood to try a sour beer tonight, and I've got some idea's about doing a sour one in the future. Has anyone harvested yeast from a Cantillon bottle before? I assume they're bottle conditioned with the bugs, but I'm not sure. I also heard that a good 1.070 2 row base beer is a good place to start for a lambic. I'm going to do a couple of gallon mini batches to see how they turn out, but the yeast is the first step. Anyone done this?

What I would do is just ferment the beer with a normal sacch yeast and then add the dregs directly to the beer. With brett, I don't know that making a starter will necessarily benefit you. You will be in for a long wait, but it'll be worth it.

Saw an article on this in BYO yesterday...I wanna say it was from 99, but that's all I can remember and I can't find it now. Either way, just follow the same things you do when you harvest yeast, but if you ever use lysozyme, don't use it with this.
