Default many

In the winter I usually ferment at similar temps...59 to 62. Most Ale yeast will ferment well in that range...with only 2 possible issues:

after the bulk of fermentation has completed...try to find a slightly higher temp or you the final gravity might not get quite where you want it. Slightly warmer finishing temps will also help the yeast process diacetyl...which can be a problem at lower temps

Ceramic Infrared Heat Emitter

would probably be better than a bare light bulb

after 17 year hiatus, I've only been brewing since October, temps in the unfinished part of the basement have been high 50s/low 60s and my ales have turned out great

if I could only get the BigHair to greenlight the purchase of a chest freezer
