You can divide by 5 for everything but the pre-boil volume, because the boil-off depends on the pot and does not scale by batch size. If you know the post-boil volume you want and the boil-off rate...

My method was to dump the grains, rinse the bag well, and spray with sanitizer (Iodophor solution, in my case). I've never had an infection this way, but I've always worried about it.
