Beersmith can be a powerful tool, but in order to get really great results, you have to be very particular about what you input. For example, your beersmith computation says 3.57 gal boil - you're telling me now that this is actually more than a half gallon off. Adjust in beersmith to more accurately depict what you really did - 3 gallon, include your boil off and such and it will give you a more accurate idea of the what the OG should be. All the little things make a difference! Did you do the late extract additions as the schedule shows?
Also, do you realize that munich is a base malt and needs to be mashed? You can't add it into a steep like your can specialty grains. If you brew extract and want to use munich, you are going to have to conduct a mini mash on it - a brief foray into all grain brewing.
