Default Ale vs Lager

I was wondering if anyone ever tried a batch of beer using both ale and lager yeasts?

Do you mean using both yeasts in the same fermenter, or splitting the batch into two fermenters, using ale in one and lager in the other?

Cooper's upscale kits has some that use a hybrid yeast like that. Some that have tried them say it works pretty good. I'm trying to remember which kits used it. Thomas Cooper's selection I think?...They're said to be better than the OS kits.

By the way, OP, don't post the same question in more than one forum. If you asked in the wrong forum, ask a moderator to move for you instead of posting it again in another forum. New one here.

Expect this one to get deleted.

All their Premium Selection series (Heritage Lager, Traditional Draught, Australian Bitter....) come with a blend of ale/lager yeast. Their Australian Pale Ale and Mexican Cerveza also come with it.

I believe Wyeast or White Labs has a lager/ale blend for cream ales.

One wort with both yeasts. Maybe it would increase the attenuation.

Would you ferment this blend like an ale?
