Default Harvesting Yeast from a bottle

I知 after authentic Coopers Sparkling Ale. Since its bottle conditioned, I知 planning on harvest some yeast from the bottle. I致e never done this before.

My POA:
Some friend and I will drink a 6-pack of Coopers Ale. We will poor most of the beer into glasses and dump the rest (~1/12) into a starter container. Using saran wrap and keeping a good sterile work environment of course. Later that night, I知 going to cook up a starter, add it to the collective bottom beer and let it run for about 3 days.

Is it that easy or I知 I missing something?


Since I知 posting, here is the recipe I知 going to use:
