First off let me state that this is a list from personal research on several public sites and I do not claim any of this research to be solely mine. I have researched a lot over the past few months and this is what I have come up with since there is no real up to date list. If a beer is controversial know that I have researched it and if I get several people saying I am wrong I will take it off the list. (confirmed) means from 3-4 sources. Oh and I don't indicate primary or bottling strains because I do not have a degree in microbiology. I will update this OP with an updated list every once and awhile so keep your eyes out. Enjoy and feel free to add!!

Can't you harvest yeast from any bottle conditioned beer? I'm still not understanding the point of this exercise but okay.

Cool list!
I just did a batch with harvested yeast from a bottle of Chimay White (tripel). It came out great!

Not always and there is only one other list available and it is way out of date, http://www.nada.kth.se/~alun/Beer/Bottle-Yeasts/
Try researching which ones work without my list or that old one... It is very frustrating and I know those of us who harvest yeast would like an updated list instead of buying a beer, making a started and find out 1-2 days later that your work was pointless.

It doesn't have to be bottle-conditioned. It can be force carbonated. It just needs to be non-filtered and non-pasteurized.

Thanks for the feedback so far!! I will add updates to the OP once I get a few new posts in order to not edit it every day. Make sure to tell your brew friends on HBT so we can get this list to grow!!
