You should follow the recipe. Perle Hops generally have a much higher alpha acid content than Saaz. The Saaz Hops are there for aroma and flavor, while the Perle are pretty much just bittering Hops.

I don't own the program, so I'm not sure if this helps, but does it have Caramel Malt? Crystal Malt and Caramel Malt are one-in-the-same.
