Commercial Beer Yeast Harvest List
 
First off let me state that this is a list from personal research on several public sites and I do not claim any of this research to be solely mine. I have researched a lot over the past few months and this is what I have come up with since there is no real up to date list. If a beer is controversial know that I have researched it and if I get several people saying I am wrong I will take it off the list. (confirmed) means from 3-4 sources. Oh and I don't indicate primary or bottling strains because I do not have a degree in microbiology. I will update this OP with an updated list every once and awhile so keep your eyes out. Enjoy and feel free to add!! :mug:

Sorry for the ignorance but what are you confirming exactly? I don't understand your list

Can't you harvest yeast from any bottle conditioned beer? I'm still not understanding the point of this exercise but okay. :rockin:

Cool list!
I just did a batch with harvested yeast from a bottle of Chimay White (tripel). It came out great!

Not always and there is only one other list available and it is way out of date, http://www.nada.kth.se/~alun/Beer/Bottle-Yeasts/
Try researching which ones work without my list or that old one... It is very frustrating and I know those of us who harvest yeast would like an updated list instead of buying a beer, making a started and find out 1-2 days later that your work was pointless.

It doesn't have to be bottle-conditioned. It can be force carbonated. It just needs to be non-filtered and non-pasteurized.

You can add Captain Sig's Northwestern Ale to the list!

PurpleJeepXJ 08-14-2011 06:51 PM

Thanks for the feedback so far!! I will add updates to the OP once I get a few new posts in order to not edit it every day. Make sure to tell your brew friends on HBT so we can get this list to grow!!
