General thought for the future - build in a top off water contingency to your boil. O2 is not a concern at the end of boil. Since it is unusual that you would ever want to add more than a gallon, you could take a gravity sample, and make the call. Use an electric tea kettle and add the...
Legal code as mentioned before. Remember though - save that one unless there are more code violations you can pick on. Save the trump card for all-out war

OK so stick with the enhancer. Maltodextrin is not fermentable, so probably a reason for it. Also good idea to do first batch as close to what manufacturer intended - can't know where to go until you know what it tastes like. It may be perfect as-is, may stink.
Yeast first - it needs to be...

Pale 85%, Munich 10%, cara 40 5%
Centennial straight through. 60, 20 2, dry hop. (Maybe some BRU-1 in dryhop)
Keep it simple
There are a lot of very experienced and knowledgeable people in here. Have used their wisdom many times and has definitely improved my brewing.
I am sure you will find a lot of useful information. Great crowd in here
You can add San Diego super yeast (WLP 090) but you will still have two more percentage points to get. Might I suggest adding top-off water and diluting a bit? 17% seems to be your current ABV and while a victory in some sense if you hit, completely unnecessary.
