What if it's a bottom fermenting lager yeast
Same rule applies. Because the clean yeast you want to crop is in the fermenting wort. Not among the dead and dying at the bottom or among the debris floating on the top.

Are you saying you take a sample of the fermenting wort at this time? If so, I guess you then need to grow it on in a starter?

Or am I missing the point here.

I'd love to see a video showing precisely what you mean :-)
