Brewed a dark ale sunday afternoon and pitched the starter by 4pm. Moved to a nice dark warm 66-68 degree spot. Woke up Monday and the beer was fermenting away.Same Tues and Wed morining. Wed afternoon I went and checked and the temp in the room had dropped to 60. I moved the fermentor to a new room 66 degrees. Should I have any worries about a stopped fermentation or anyother issues. I plan on checking the gravity fri,sat,sun before I move to a secondary for a few weeks.

Nope, just move it to a warmer place and you'll be fine.

Depending on the yeast 60 degrees might be fine; even ideal.

Do you mean 001?

White Labs 011 is European Ale Yeast.

If you are using White Labs California Ale Yeast WLP001, then yeah, get the temp back up. It will likely stall out at 60.

Cycling and beer-making go together. You've got to ride to keep the beer from gathering around the middle. I went compact 50x13 myself.
