No anything above 60 degrees is good in my book.

Should I add more sugar or yeast?

Why first wort the summit? I would move the Ahtanum Hops there instead. Also would consider involving Citra instead of Simcoe. Seems like you would want more citrus flavor and less pine...

I love your grain breakdown. The only thing i would change (more of a personal preference) is to get a higher alpha hop for your bittering. I usually use summit, but again this is all preference.

I strain after I cool the wort as I am putting it into my primary. I don't see why you wouldn't do this, most do. Don't strain later after fermentation has started. This will oxidize your beer. Prior...
