Default San Francisco Lager Yeast other uses

Anyone use this yeast or the Wyeast California Lager yeast for anything other than the California Common style. I'm just about to rack that off the yeastcake and am thinking I should do something with the yeast.

I'm mostly curious as to whether or not it would actually make a good lager that is still fermented around 60-64*.

I made a really nice cream ale. Then used the yeast to do a baltic porter. Still carbonating, so I can't tell you how that one came out, yet.

Yeah I figured a baltic or a cream ale would work alright but I'm wondering about a straight up lager

I use it with a schwarzbier (black lager) and its pretty tasty. I ferment a little on the cold side for SF Lager at 57F, but it works well.
