Subject: ReCycling Weizen Yeast

I brewed an (IMHO) excellent wheat beer about three months
ago using a Wyeast Wiezen culture. It came out so good that
I've done a Rasberry Wheat and am about to do a DunkleWeisse.

I thought it would be a good thing to to re-use the yeast from
my first batch (in the form of bottle leavings) on my next couple
of wheat beers.

As I was culturing last night (4 tablespoons dried wheat malt extract,
1 pint of water; boiled) I got to thinking, does one of the strains
take dominence in the bottle? As everyone know the Wyeast Weizen product
is actually a mix of two yeast strains. If one strain (say the noraml
Ale strain) survives the dormacy period better will my beer be un-balanced.

So my question is; Has anyone successfully re-used the Wyeast _Weizen_
strain?

Brew on Dude,

John D.
