Harvesting Ayinger yeast

I'm planning on doing some lagers and was wondering if anyone has bottle harvested Ayinger lager yeast (or if they even bottle condition their lagers, I haven't had one in a while). My LHBS doesn't carry many lager yeasts and I know Jamil has raved about the Ayinger lager strain in the past.

Any advice?

Honestly, I'd find somewhere to order WLP 833 and have it shipped to you:

From what I can tell, WLP 833 is the Ayinger strain. You'll get it fresh, and won't need to worry about getting old yeast and trying to propogate it. Especially if you can reuse it for a few bactches, it would be worth the cost, to me.

I try not to get stuff shipped to HI, it's expensive and kind of a pain. I've also bottle harvested numerous times, I've got over 7 years of microbiology education and experience, I'm not worried about propagating it.

Does anyone know if they bottle condition their lagers with house yeast?
