Twice a day maximum doesn't seem possible unless some sort of miracle happens. I was down as low as 2.5 per day when things were going pretty decent... but never 2 maximum.
O right. For some people, once a day is normal. And for the others, 2-3x a day is normal.
I really hope that the FT works for you.
And as for considering Remicade, I was reluctant to try the biologics for more than a year so I'm sure it's a big deal for you too.
My doctor recommended Remicade after I've failed to stay on 6mp or Imuran, but never did until I really needed it. Remicade did not end up great for me but Humira seems to be fine. Experiencing no side effects so far.
Remicade has higher chance of working better for people with UC so good luck if you ever decide to go on it.
And here is the review of Remicade by the people who had been on it before and are currently on it.
