Good all purpace Lager yeas
My old favorite WLP 833 Has been Replaced with SAFLAGER W34/70 LAGER YEAST and although I have the ability to control fermentation temperature I can start this out @ 58 degrees and let it free Rise to into the mid  60s F w very clean lager like characteristics. Just brewed A Baltic porter  using the new Baltic extract . 3 # Vienna malt  and 1# Belgian D-180 1.074 using 2 packets 34/70 in one week its down 1.012. ! Best of all I can brew Lager  any time without preparing a starter

I usually don't brew lagers because of the cost of liquid yeast and the hassle of at least a one step starter. After hearing good things about W34/70 I decided to give it a try in a lager version of my house beer: lemon-rosemary blonde. 
Wowzer, I was very pleased with the results and will be brewing more lagers in the not too distant future.

Nice results, watch your temps
Pros: I have had some excellent results with this yeast, very clean flavors, a touch on the sweet side.  Obviously, it's very easy to use, so I always keep a couple of packs around, just in case a lager-brewing day opens up. 

Cons: Watch your temperatures. My experience is that if you get to the 48-50 F range for this one, it doesn't attenuate well, so keep temps nice and steady in the low 50's and expect a longer lagering time than usual.

Great Dry Lager yeast
Pros: Direct dry pitchable  yeast that is very forgiving.  After lagering I was left with a full bodied crisp lager.  This was my forth attempt at a lager and my best batch ever. 

Cons: Wished it was slightly dryer.
