What are the recommendations? I tried searching out a good thread, but couldn't really find one.

I'm going to be brewing a nice dark dubbel next weekend and I have a few bottles of Bell's Hell Hath No Fury that I would like to harvest the yeast from. What's the best method? I have a 2000ml flask, yeast nutrient, and a LHBS somewhat handy if I need something else.

Search on here for "bottle harvest pacman" or "Pacman Video"...there's a ton of info on here about it..We were doing it awhile back with rogue's yeast.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.
