AG brewer since 2007. Current rig is a clone plus extras of http://theelectricbrewery.com. I like most styles of beer.

Projects in progress are a custom kegbot that tracks beer consumption without a flowmeter, a brewpi fermentation controller and a digital specific gravity meter.

I built a clone plus extras of the electric brewery. See my avatar. A large part of the cost was shipping from the US to Norway.

That's right, the yeast secrete invertase to break down succrose.

comment Maintaining Optimal Flavor in a Brown Ale
I agree, although in my case, I am at a loss to explain how some beers go downhill, although my latest brews, both light beers are still good after 6 weeks, so I may have nailed the issue with small tweaks to my process.

It's similar in Norway. A good beer will cost you 50-75kr, or about $10-15 USD per bottle here. Also local pubs sell a pint of beer for the same price.

I'm not sure what you are asking. Can you make the question more specific?

Sure, but there may be visitors to the site looking for similar answers. :) I agree with this one 55-60 does sound very low, unless it was a lager yeast. I would warm to 65-70F for a week and then chill, as mentioned in this answer.
