The recipe seems a little heavy on the crystal. A lb and a half of crystal is quite a bit for almost any recipe let alone an IPA. I'd cut the 20 and the 60 in half.

Yea, 58 degrees is definately on the low side for just about any ale yeast. A dyacetyl rest would probably have helped you out. I'd still say keep it for a while and see if it improves with age.

I like the stout idea, or you could go with a nice Blackberry wheat. Maybe 4.5 lbs 2 row, 3.5 lbs wheat, 6 oz crystal 20, single addition of an oz of lower AA (around 5.5%) hop of your choice for 60...

With that much corn sugar in there I think it should have dropped a little more. I don't know about 1.013, but I don't think that 1.025 or even 1.020 would be out of the question. The problem is...

I'd add some bittering hops to the Grand Cru, even if it's just a half ounce or so. I don't think there will be enough bitterness in the prehopped can to balance out all the extra fermentables you...

Nope, 64 sounds perfect too me (pretty good temp for just about any ale yeast). The aggressive fermentation means that the yeast are happy, I'd say leave them alone and let them party!!!

I always boil my bottle caps. Starsan should do it, but it doesn't take any extra time to boil them, and I like having the peace of mind.

You don't need a starter for dry yeast. But with a gravity that high it wouldn't have been a bad idea to pitch 2 packets at the beginning instead of one.

Keep in mind as well that although your basement is 60* the activity within the fermenting beer probably meant it was around 63 or 64.....which is PERFECT.

I always put fruit in the primary after the initial fermentation is pretty much done(3 or 4 days usually). It starts back up again, then I let it finish and rack to secondary.
