This dogfish head beer is bottle conditioned. I know breweries will often use lager yeast to do this. I was wondering if there's a way to tell if dfh used lagers yeast or their propriety ale strain? If its their doggie strain then I ld like to harvest it

You might email them and ask, or just harvest some and see what happens.

I would suspect that an ale would use ale yeast and a lager would use lager yeast in a commercial situation.

I did recently brewed a California Common which uses lager yeasts fermented at ale temperatures. It is considered a hybrid beer.

I was told by a local brewer that often ale and hefeweizens are bottle conditioned using lager yeast in commercial breweries. That was my concern

I assume its the doggy yeast, I know Life and Limb is bottled with a blend of Chico and Doggy yeast.

I think if you emailed them they would be more than happy to tell you.

I haven't heard anyone say they've isolated it so I figured dfh might not want their yeast out In the homebrew world

Nope, no point in asking them. I did about a handful of things and was told that as they are a publicly traded company the information is proprietary and not to be released. Now I would assume though that this only applies to direct inquiries and not to info you can find in interviews etc.... So it maybe out there, you just can't get them to tell ya athing

Further to this ^... I've posted this before, but on my first tour to DFH, I asked them if they could tell me what strain the "mystery hop X" was that they used to reference on marketing for 60 min...their tongue in cheek answer was that if I could provide them with the recipe for original Coke, they would share the recipe for 60 min...

I've further wondered whether anyone would notice if, should I happen to bring a sanitized jar with me on the tour, I happened to get a little sample from the happy active blow off tube coming from one of the many fermenters you walk by...

And even further...It surprises me that Sam, being the businessman he is, hasn't made a deal with Wyeast or WhiteLabs to release their proprietary yeast commercially...
