Bolognaise needs another hour, can I make the bechamel for lasagne assembly now then add later or will it be gross by then?

I’ve done this. The béchamel will go a bit claggy as it cools but I just reheated it slightly and added a bit more milk so it was back to how I wanted it.

I do, I lay clingfilm or greaseproof across the top while it's cooling to prevent a skin from forming (so it touches the surface), never had a problem.
