what would you recommend if i wanted to use dry yeast for this recipe? and one or two packs? also, do you just transfer to a secondary? and do you re-pitch at that time or all at once? thanks and sorry for all the questions. i am doing my first pilsner and i like yours the best so far.

Since the OP hasn't logged in for 7 months, maybe I can help. Fermentis Saflager W-34/70 is the dry equivalent to 2124. Two packs in 5 gallons is a good pitch rate. Repitching will not be necessary in just 5 weeks.

Thank you very much. Have you brewed this? I want to change the hop profile a bit to make it a more unique pilsner. Any recommendations?

I haven't brewed this recipe, but I tend to prefer a lot more hops in my Pilsner. That may have something to do with my usual lager yeast choice, 2308, which could be considered a malt-forward strain, so I would suggest brewing the recipe as written, or as closely as you can.
