I've had pretty decnt results with 34/70. but have found this yeast improves with subsequent generations.  I have a German pils lagering right now that I used the third generation of this yeast.  Early results are dry and clean.  I'll let you know how it turns out in about another month.  Don't now if third generation really qualifies as a dry yeast any more though.

I've made three pilsners this winter with 34/70, and like them a lot.  Dry, crisp.....First keg is almost gone, second is just about done lagering, third has been lagering for a week.

Couldn't have been any good if you made them this winter and you haven't kicked even one keg yet!  :P
