I used the Unibroue bottle strain for my latest Belgian Strong and its fermented out quite nice (1.084 to 1.010). The beer is still far from ready, but the sample taste I took was quite nice. It definitely had that unique unibroue flavour in it.

Just my 2 cents but considering it had the Unibroue flavour characteristics, I would think that the bottle strain may be similar if not the same as the actual yeast used in their primary fermentation.

I brewed a pumpkin wheat with Harpoon UFO Hefeweizen harvested yeast. The beer started @ 1.053 and finished at 1.009 and is as clear as can be. It doesn't have the look or flavor of a Hefe. It doesn't taste too bad so far but it just isn't to style.

Aren't all of the Allegash beers bottle-conditioned with the original fermenting yeast?

Yeah, that's true. However, I chose the white because it is the lowest abv, therefore less stressed yeast from fermentation.

You can add OMalley's beer from Weston Mo. They make a Drop Kick Ale, a Cream Ale, a Ruddy Wheat, and others. I talked to the brewer and he said their house yeast is American Ale Yeast 1056.

I've harvested the yeast from Driftwood's Farmhand Ale, the Unibroue offerings, and the dregs from Cantillon. Won't really know how well that least one worked for a while.
+1 on different bottling strain for Unibroue based on my research, too. I've purchased the Wyeast Private Collection Belgian Canadian when it comes out. It is the Unibroue strain. They didn't release it this year. I wrote Wyeast and they told me they were thinking about releasing it in 2012.

My understanding is the White Labs WLP530 is the Westmalle yeast.

I've used this yeast a lot over the past few years and agree that it's either the same or ultra close. A few Triples I made could pass for Westamalle.

Harvested viable yeast from Rogue Brewery's Sig's Northwestern Ale. Used it in my weekends brew and its fermenting like a champ!

Great Divide's Colette has yeast that you can harvest. Apparently they use a blend of 4 strains, but whichever one that took off in my starter made a pretty good saison. May be worthwhile trying to get a separate strain of each going on a streak plate or something.
