Plug your numbers into Yeastcalc.com...I'm guessing it's not.
And honestly, I've noticed my yeast is considerably better after the first generation. So I might consider brewing a small batch of something, ferment it warmer with the lager yeast, harvest it, then pitch the slurry into your lager. More steps, but I think you'll get better results. Or just buy more yeast.
