Has anyone successfully cultured founder's yeast? If so, which beer did you collect from?

I was thinking of brewing a clone of their breakfast stout and might try to clone their yeast if it's not too much trouble.

Never tried or heard of anyone culturing it, but to me, the yeast doesn't really play into Breakfast stout. I think it's probably something like WLP001/1056.

I recently spoke with one of the brewers at Founders and he said they straight up used White labs. No proprietary secrets. They use their strains 10 times and just start over.

I was told by their fermentationist that they use 1056 in all their beers.

I have successfully cultured yeast from Founder's Centennial IPA.
