He-brews,

You certainly can use an ale yeast..... but it won't be a lager. Ale yeasts have a bit of a fruitiness and some esters that lager yeasts avoid.

It certainly will be good but will probably be more in the line of a cream ale instead of a Helles.

Brew it up. No harm at all!

Also, the hydrometer sample I stuck in the refrigerator cleared up within a week, this makes me think that I could get this lagered in less than 2 weeks if needed?
Two weeks will be fine. Sounds like you did everything perfectly.

Sounds good Taco. Maybe the extra melanoiden will actually improve the beer! Keep us posted.

I think it's going to work out great and you'll make a fine beer.

Off topic but if you normally brew with tap water try using mostly R.O. or distilled.

Of all the changes I've made to my process over the years- water is by far the most important. I can't express this enough to any brewer.

Yes I have an RO/DI unit that's really brand new but how much of this water should I use? I bought 5 gallon of spring water for this beer and so I would have another fermenting vessel, lol.

Brew day went fairly smooth, although I accidentally added my 60 minute hops at the 90 minute mark. I decided to continue with 90 minute boil. My Og clocked in at 1.057 so maybe the extra ibus won't be too noticeable. Cooled wort to 51 and split a 4L starter between my carboys. Hoping for activity in the morning!

Good job! You are fine with the 90 minute addition. Hop utilization is rarely over 30% overall and the additional 30 minutes will not affect the beer at all. You could boil those hops all day and not get over 30% utilization.

Your temperatures and starter volume are excellent.

Keep us posted and throw some pictures up when available.
