I don't remember a crystal malt flavor in Dos Equis. But it's been a while since I've had it. I would probably skip the crystal, and either do a decoction or add some melanoidin or aromatic malt.

Agree with Yooper on the crystal and 13% Aromatic is way too much IMO. If you increase the percentage of Vienna you won't need it anyway.

For a Dos Equis style I'd start with 40% each Vienna and Lager malt along with 20% flaked maize perhaps along with an ounce or two of CarafaII for color boost. The hops and the yeast seem appropriate. If you want to make a much better and more traditional Vienna just go with 100% Vienna malt and you will not regret it.
