Have you tried basic bread yeast? You might be surprised how good a beer it will produce

Says he's bottling in a fortnight (2 weeks) Missing your OG by 16 points is pretty drastic, I haven't reviewed your file but I'd be looking back into method and recipe. Volumes really do need to be known and fairly accurate to have any hope of consistency. Maybe run your method from grind to filling...

I do the same for the most part. Sure cuts the cost down.
I am going to start freezing again so I can build up my yeast bank. At one time I had over 30 different yeasts to pick from. Most came from a cup full of slurry from other peoples" brews. I lost it when I moved.
