I will attempt to confirm this for you next this week.

I just started a harvest of Pranqster yeast last night, using the dregs from 4 bottles.

According to Brew Like a Monk it is not re-yeasted so it should be the same strain. There was plenty of yeast in the bottom of the bottles.

I will post back after I brew up a Tripel using it.

I can confirm that as of 3mos ago the New Belgium Fat Tire has no yeast to start from. Tried 3 different batches (4oz per from bottle) and no dice even with some energizer added in the last one. As a side note, the bottles were crystal clear after 3mos in the fridge.

If anyone comes across one of the New Belgium line that uses their strain pls post it. I missed the special release and cloning it keeps her off my back about my other brewing adventures/experiments but I have to make multi-state trips just to get the real stuff. (And mock FT if you want but it/subs helps me stay out of living in Cali so as far as I'm concerned it could taste like baboon sweat and I'd be happy with it.)

Anyone know if Chimay uses the same yeast in all 3 (blue, white, red)? Want to harvest some Chimay yeast, and I have all 3 beers. Wondering if I can harvest from all 3 and use them together.

Has anybody ever tried harvesting yeast from and of the Southern Tier brews? I've never met a Southern Tier I haven't liked and I've thought about trying to make a Phin & Matt's Clone. It'd be awesome if I could harvest yeast to do so.

Any definitive consensus on whether Stone uses a different yeast for bottling? Harvested yeast from Stone IPA using the dregs from two bottles. I have a decent amount of yeast growing in the starter after about a day and a half. No off-smells but I haven't tasted any of the starter wort to see about off-flavors.

Word on the street is they are all the same yeast.

Stone's normal beers just use WLP007 anyways...

But no, I'm pretty sure they don't bottle with a different yeast. In fact, it's absolutely pointless when they're using such a widely available strain.

Would like to see what people say. I plan to try and harvest a few batched now because well...
1) I'm a cheap bastard
2) It's seems better than giving me a liitle bit of vitamin E or B.
Unibroue is all the same strain, but this is another example of a strain that can just be bought at the LHBS.
