With a proper sized starter, it will be done w/in 10 days. How big was your starter?

Also, pitching lager yeast @ 65F defeats the purpose of making a lager. By the time it cools down, esters that shouldn't be in a lager have already been produced.

If I can't get one cool enough w/ my chiller, I put it in the fridge until it has cooled to the proper pitching temp--~50f, (usually overnight) and then pitch.

It will still be good, but will have more esters (out of style for lager) than it should.
