I ask the same question some time ago and the answer was no. Having all that yeast around it doesn´t make sense to have another strain for bottling. I don´t know if you are looking to harvest chimay yeast from bottles but if you are go ahead a lot of peole have done it with good results, just get the premier-red (it´s the lowest abv of their brews)

Thanks! I have been stepping up from a white and it's doing great. Just made a 2 liter starter for my Belgian strong this weekend.

FYI the Chimay strain is easily available WLP500 and /or wyeast 1214 are the Chimay yeast. Great yeast I used it just recently in a Belgian blond. Yum!

Thank you very much. I was getting nervous as I am about 40 hours in and real airlock activity. I'm hoping it's just the slow start. I just hope I didn't drastically under pitch or treat the yeast too hard.

Still normal. Its super slow to start, but when it gets going it goes nuts. It took my last BDS from 1.12 to 1.011 in about 1 week.
