lager yeast: dry vs. liquid

lager yeast: dry vs. liquid

Has anybody out there had good success with the (few) dry lager yeasts available? I've been using liquid, but I wouldn't mind a dry alternative.

Robert,

My very first lager used one 14 gm package of Yeastlab's Euro lager yeast
with great success.  Primary was at 51 deg. for 8days and secondary was
at 40 deg. for about 3 weeks.  I have since gone to liquid yeast, but
if I had to choose a dry one, I would use this one with no hesitation.
BTW, I prepared a primitive wort starter at the time.

Cheers,

Bear
