Default Vienna hybrid - recipe help

Hello everyone. I'm hoping to make a Vienna lager-ish beer, but I'm limited to extract brewing and don't have a spare fridge/freezer for lagering, so... this is my idea. On the advice of a few posters over in the extract brewing forums, I'm going do a partial mash with the Vienna malt, and I've added Carafa special to bring my SRM values up to where I want it. To counter the no lagering capabilities problem, I'm going to use a german ale yeast, and I should be able to ferment it at the lowest end of its preferred temps by putting my primary in water in my cellar.

I've included the recipe I've come up with using hopville's beer calculus - let me know what you think, any advice and comments would be welcome!

I'd skip the corn sugar and use DME in a Vienna lager-ish beer and I'd leave out the carafa. If you really, really, really want a dark color, you could use an ounce or two but it'll be really brown. 6 ounces is way too much.
