I can confirm that yeast can be harvested from unfiltered canned beer. I grew some from Heady Topper (I asked about it a while back and there didn't seem to be an answer out there).

My first IPA and my first harvested yeast are both a success as of bottling today!

Pranqster harvest worked....

Just took a gravity reading for a tripel I brewed and it went from1.071 to 1.010. Am going to bottle either next week or the week after that....

Sample tasted pretty good.

Delirium tremens harvest took my beer from 1.086 to 1.013, 83% attenuation. Smells and tastes pretty good so far, bottling today.

I did my first bottle harvest on my new stir plate and was amazed at how much this took off. The yeast was harvested from a single bottle of Bell's Winter White Ale. I believe this yeast is very different from the yeast Bell's uses in their year round beers. The website says it's a belgian strain. tastes a bit like a hefe but not as much banana. pretty god wheat yeast though. pitched it into 250 ml of about 1.020 wort and was surprised to find this much krausen when I got home from work today.

Just started drinking a Belgian Golden brewed with Pranqster yeast. Mine also fermented out very well, 1.080 to 1.010 (87%!). 10.1% ABV Tasting very good and great body. Seems like I should have raised the temperature a bit for some stronger belgian character but a great brew nevertheless.

I harvest pacman from dead guy all the time. It takes several step ups, but about twice a year I'll harvest pacman and share with my brew club.

I harvested from two bottles of dead guy. Took 4 days on a stir plate before I saw any activity. I came home from running errands intending to dump it and found krausen and it fermenting like gangbusters.

Ok so I'm new to harvesting and making larger starters. Question is this, how important is it to use a stir plate? Also is it necessary to use yeast nutrients?
