Yes you can, many beers bottle harvest and use the same strain in the bottle as they brew with, though not all, use our search function and look up "bottle Harvesting Yeast" "Yeast Harvesting" and there's some great info if you search "Bottle Harvesting Pacman" there's even a video how to on one of the pacman yeast threads.
