I was wondering what success or not so successful stories you have on harvesting yeast from commercial bottles for your brews.
I use bengal lancer yeast a lot ( a pale in the fv from the weekend now) and have great success with it in both pales and my dark christmas brew. It adds a fruitiness I find.
I captured a few bottles of proper job yeast for a brew soon to compare/contrast in a similar recipe (hop stocks permitting) and a couple of westmalle dubbel for a Belgian.
These are all bottled with the primary strain as far as I've read. What others have you used?
