I might be pretty noodish at this, but I am thinking that just an oz of saaz at 60 minutes isn't going to be much bittering for 7 pounds of lme. Just off of the top of my head that'll be like 15 ibu's, unless you have some crazy AA saaz. For a vienna lager I would shoot for 18-30 ibu's. To get there you may want to add another half oz or so.
