Default Dry lager yeast suggestion

Want to do a German Pilsner, and do not want to start using liquid yeast again. I started using SafAle US-56 3+ years ago and am extremely happy with the results.

Anyone have any hands on experience with a Pils using any of the Safxxx family of dry yeast.

Thanks

Happy 4th

I've used Saflager 23 on a few lagers and I can't complain. Just don't tell your beersnob friends or they'll turn their nose up at your saflager brew.

Thanks for the info. I got really spoiled using the US-56 instead of the 001

Another Q:

Hops - I've used Hallertau Hersb. in the past. For some reason, even with a 15 minute addition, the beer had a nice hop aroma

Any hop "mandatory" for a Pils ?
