Default Crunkel recipe!

Almost a dunkel, but I don't think it's quite there. Based on a recipe I found on beertools, I've come up with this, based on what I have on hand:

4 oz simpsons dark crystal
4 oz roasted barley
4 oz chocolate wheat

3.3# light LME
3# Wheat DME

.5 oz challenger 7.1 60 mins
.5 oz challenger 7.1 30 min

My problem is the yeast. I have wpl 400 belgian wit, or Saf 04 and 05.
I was thinking of splitting the wort into 2 5 gallon carboys and doing one s-04 and one s-05. But if the wpl400 is going to be better, I'll use that.

Any thoughts?

0.4 oz. Perle (Pellets, 8.25 %AA) boiled 60 min. info
Yeast : White Labs WLP400 Belgian Wit Ale info
My problem is the recipe shoots for 1.050, and mine came out 1.022. (both on hydrometer and ATC refractometer)

Did I get absolute garbage from my steep?
2 + gallons: Started at 150. When it cooled down to 144 (after about 25 min) I heated it back up to 148. After another half hour I moved the grain bag to 1/2 gallon of water at 160.
20 minutes later I pulled the bag, and mixed the two pots together, and turned up the heat to start the boil.

was I that inefficient?

Any other thoughts that might help me out next time? (besides "buy a cooler" which is next on the list.)

There shouldn't be any significant extraction from the steeping grains. Something wierd is going on here if you're getting 1.022 with almost 7 lbs. of grain.
