    She doesn't like you drinking, either - so no go.

    Why?

    Because if you chill an ale, the cold temps dullen the taste buds anyway and you don't get the same degree of flavor.

    For home brewers, if you want a lager, just chill an ale. Close enough.
    i have made a biere de garde* using pilsener and pale malt mixed and bakers yeast and just told lager drinkers it was lager, they thought it was really good and nagged a couple of other guys who were into home brewing to try making some too.

    I was inspired by supermarkets in Glasgow selling bierre de garde as lager. Mine was better.

    *It's just like doing a pale ale only less hops.
    Don’t say, “It’s been a good day” till sundown.
    Don’t say, “She’s a good wife” till she’s buried.
    Don’t say, “It’s a good sword” till you’ve tested it.
    Don’t say, “She’s a good girl” till she’s married off.
    Don’t say, “The ice is safe” till you’ve crossed it.
    Don’t say, “The beer is good” till you’ve drunk the last of it.

    From Hávamál, a Norse poem
