It looks good to me. My stouts don't take any more time than my ambers do.

I would swap a pound of some toasted malt like amber, biscuit, victory, or maybe even aromatic or melanoidin, for the 60L crystal, but otherwise that sounds awesome. The amber/80L crystal combo seems to produce a malt bomb effect that no amount of loading up crystal malts can replicate.
