Hrmpf. From http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/marks/colon.htm:
There is some disagreement among writing reference manuals about
when you should capitalize an independent clause following a
colon. Most of the manuals advise that when you have more than one
sentence in your explanation or when your sentence(s) is a formal
quotation, a capital is a good idea. The NYPL Writer's Guide urges
consistency within a document; the Chicago Manual of Style says
you may begin an independent clause with a lowercase letter unless it's
one of those two things (a quotation or more than one sentence).
The APA Publication Manual is the most extreme: it advises us to
always capitalize an independent clause following a colon. The advice
given above is consistent with the Gregg Reference Manual.
Based on that, I think that a capital is the correct case here.

Yep. How did you guess? :-)
