I'm sure it's been mentioned here before, but I've recently harvested Conan yeast from Heady Topper.

I was lucky enough to get a case of Westvleteren XII for Christmas this year. I am in the process of attempting to harvest the yeast from a bottle and so far its looking like its going to take. I will update the final results in a couple days when its done.

If it fails I got another 3 bottles to attempt with!

Just starting building up some yeast from bottle of Maudite last night. Showing the w wife she made a good investment in the Christmas Gift she gave me. Hope it works out and is ready for Saturday.

you may know this already but I believe the Westy yeast is Westmalle which is available commercially as 3787.

I did not, though I am unsurprised. Still it looks like I am going to harvest it successfully so its a bonus on top of the amazing beer.

Tried twice to harvest Conan from some Heady Topper. First time I used an sterile inoculation loop and tried to plate out from the dregs in the can. After 10 days I had zero growth on the plates. Second attempt I opened a can and poured off 90% into a glass in one clean pour. I then swirled the dregs and added it to 400ml of 1.020 wort and put it on my stir plate. After 72hrs of zero activity I wrapped the flask in a couple of kitchen towels to try and warm it up a bit. Woke up this morning to find the start of a krausen!

Assuming it takes off like a normal starter from this point, I'll plate out from the starter and then grow up and isolate some single colonies to slant.

Definitely the best beers for reharvesting are true import Belgians - sure you can buy the WLP or WYeast strains, but they lack the traditional "flare" of their original counterparts...

I just found a blog from a Belgian monk (I didn't think Monks could blog), but it's pretty interesting...
