Well, now that you have a good lager yeast cake in there you could re-do the fermentation the proper way, this time. Brew the exact same grain bill, throw it onto that yeast cake, ferment lower, then compare the two beers.

A neat exercise in diacetyl and acetaldehyde, I think.

I wouldn't do that either. It could develop even MORE off-flavors from decaying yeast cells. Best to get it in secondary soon after it finishes fermenting.
