Not german, but both danish 2042 and canadian 2272 rocked and made a nice dry lagers as well. I also think using 10% flaked wheat and some acid malt kicks things up in the dry/crisp department. All seems to work together. Now if I can dial in the perfect late hopping for NGP. Saaz ain't working for me. Neither is hallertau, too floral. Thinking maybe tettnanger next time.
