I would personally back down on the crystal malts a little and lower the mash temp to around 148-150. With all those crystal malts and the high mash temp, this beer will finish very sweet.
Your fermentation temp looks good if you are after a more restrained ester profile fermenting completely in the mid 60's. I personally love this yeast in the upper 60's to start, finishing in the mid 70's. Highly recommend a blowoff for this yeast. The most violent fermentation I have ever seen is when I use this strain.
