I harvested some yeast from Sam Adams Oktoberfest a few months ago. Some folks on here said the filtered there beers but the couple 6 packs I bought had sediment so I tossed it in a small starter and built it up. I found another couple 6 packs at a store in the city last week and they had sediment as well.

I'm planning to do a side by side double 1 gallon batch to try the harvested yeast against a marzen see how it turns out.

I harvested from a bottle of Caledonian's Golden Promise a little while ago. Have not tried the yeast in a batch yet.

Not entirely true. I'm pretty sure the Love Child beers have Brett and bugs in the bottle.

This is an awesome post! I'm about to brew a Nut Brown ale...does anyone know of a good brew I can harvest from for this? I was hoping Sam Adam's Hazel Brown or Sam Smith's Nut Brown might be good candidates....

(Sorry if this has already been discussed...there are lots of pages to read through)

I didn't harvest it, but the Green Flash West Coast IPAs I had last weekend had a nice layer of sediment at the bottom - it actually looked like a nice white yeast cake from a fermenter, which I thought was odd.

Next time I brew a red ale, I'll have to see if their Hop Head Red has the same sediment.

So I'm trying to harvest from a Bell's Two Hearted for my clone and it's been sitting there for 5 days with no indication that anything happened. At day 3 the SG hadn't dropped so I shook it vigorously. I had it sitting at 75F the whole time. I was almost ready to start a thread on here and was figuring I would just move onto the next step just to see if anything would happen and I look and I see tiny bubbles coming from the bottom :up:

Can't wait to get my clone going with this stuff!
