Default Wyeast 2112 California Lager question

I'm planning on making a Anchor Steam clone this weekend and was wondering if I needed to pitch it like it was a Lager or an Ale? I'm just not sure on how big of a starter I need to make. I'm looking around an OG:1.060. Thanks for the help.

Pitch it like a hybrid. There's a tab for it on Mr Malty. It's a pitch rate between an ale and lager, so about 1.1mm cells/mL/*P

I don't know why I didn't think of going to Mr. Malty I use it all the time. I guess Monday has thrown a curve at me. Thanks for the help.
