Can you propagate / collect yeast from a commercial off the shelf beer? Or has it all fallen out of suspension?

You can from unfiltered beer. Here is a thread on some beers with yeast in them.

It's easier to take a specific beer and then search in google for something like "harvesting yeast from ________". See if anything comes up and what yeast it is.

I have a link on harvesting from beer in my sig, harvesting conan yeast, it applies to all beers.
