I know you all can help with this.
Once the beer thaws, you'd still have a maibock, unless you remove some of the frozen water.
Anyway, when I re-yeast a lager, I do it at bottling. I boil up the priming solution, and cool it in my bottling bucket. Then I stir in 1/3 package of nottingham and rack the beer into that, and proceed with bottling. It works great!
