Re: yeast temps
Ale yeasts and distillers yeast slow down below 60 degrees F. and pretty much stop below 50 F., you could use a lager yeast which ferments down to near freezing.

nonsense, yeast are perfectly happy up to 110-115 F., they will not produce the best flavors at that temp but will only start to die around 120 F. If it gets too cold just warm up the fermenter and the yeast will kick right back up. -m
