Beersmith (or ANY software) has NO idea what the FG is supposed to be. They look only at the attenuation rating of the yeast, which is only meant for comparing one strain to another. It's not really indication of the attenuation you can expect. The fermentability of the wort sets that. You can get from 60-90% attenuation with the same yeast depending on the wort fermentability, pitching rate and yeast health.
