And has anyone harvested from either of these brews before?
Just to follow up on this, I harvested from a couple bottles of jester king. Used O2 and nutrient on a stir plate, with a 3 step starter. Got a crap load of yeast as a result, and had a ridiculous fermentation. I'm sitting at 0.995 right now.
