Default Ale yeast in Lager recipe

How much will it change the flavor if I use ale yeast instead of lager yeast.Because I can't do the cold fermentation right now.

It'll change it pretty significantly. The ale yeast and warmer fermentation will cause some esters to form, and it won't be the clean, crisp profile of a lager.

Still, it can be very good! If you choose a "clean" ale yeast and ferment it at the coolest end of the optimal range, it'll be a good lager mimic. I'd use something like wlp001, wyeast 1056, (liquids) or s-05 for dry. Use a big starter for the liquid yeast strains, so you don't start out with stressed yeast, and ferment at 60-65 degrees at the most if you can. That should give you a lager-ish ale.

What is the recipe?

Try California Lager, WYEAST 2112. It's tolerant up to 70..ish. Maybe high 60's.
