WLP838 is a good one, I'm usually a Wyeast person, but that 838 is solid stuff. But you also can't go wrong with 2124.So, is WLP838 the same as WY 2308 Munich Lager? I've used WY 2308 before, but not in a German Pils. Like Jon, I like my German Pils to have a crisp finish.
My recent experience with 838 has made pretty crisp tasting beers. Jeff would you agree it's a good choice for pilsner or no?
That Mr. Malty list does say 838 is the same as 2308, so...I don't know, maybe it's not what you're after. But it seemed pretty crisp to me the last times I've used it.
Off topic: I noticed that list has Denny's Favorite 50 listed as Wy2450 not 1450.
