Default Harvesting yeast from a bottle

Does anyone know if he yeast in these beers is the primary fermenting strain?

They are Schladminger and Stiegl lagers from Austria

I wanted to culture these to do a nice pale pilsner or lager soon.

Cheers!

I don't think those beers are in the 'we've successfully harvested yeast out of these bottles' thread, but I can check...

Either way, a much easier and more effective way to make a pale lager/pils is to use Saflager W34/70. Two packets and you're done.

Not really looking for the easy way. I always like complicating things.... I just want to know if the yeast is an actual lager yeast that was used in primary fermentation and not just some bottling yeast.

I do know that it is bottle conditioned, so I'm hoping to capture that classic yeast character. I've done my share of lagers, but I just wanted to try some yeast from an actual bottle from Austria.

Cheers!
