I'm sure it's been mentioned here before, but I've recently harvested Conan yeast from Heady Topper.

I was lucky enough to get a case of Westvleteren XII for Christmas this year. I am in the process of attempting to harvest the yeast from a bottle and so far its looking like its going to take. I will update the final results in a couple days when its done.

If it fails I got another 3 bottles to attempt with!

you may know this already but I believe the Westy yeast is Westmalle which is available commercially as 3787.

I did not, though I am unsurprised. Still it looks like I am going to harvest it successfully so its a bonus on top of the amazing beer.

Tried twice to harvest Conan from some Heady Topper. First time I used an sterile inoculation loop and tried to plate out from the dregs in the can. After 10 days I had zero growth on the plates. Second attempt I opened a can and poured off 90% into a glass in one clean pour. I then swirled the dregs and added it to 400ml of 1.020 wort and put it on my stir plate. After 72hrs of zero activity I wrapped the flask in a couple of kitchen towels to try and warm it up a bit. Woke up this morning to find the start of a krausen!

Assuming it takes off like a normal starter from this point, I'll plate out from the starter and then grow up and isolate some single colonies to slant.

Anyone have any luck with Rochefort? I have couple of bottles in the fridge. My search didn't turn up much...

Definitely the best beers for reharvesting are true import Belgians - sure you can buy the WLP or WYeast strains, but they lack the traditional "flare" of their original counterparts...

I just found a blog from a Belgian monk (I didn't think Monks could blog), but it's pretty interesting...
