Most yeast are good for about 75% attenuation rate. You got 69%. I am assuming you used the dry yeast pack that came with the kit? If so, that might explain the slightly lower attenuation rate. ...

1.064 should be pretty accurate. I punched it all into Beersmith, found you had about 70% efficiency, and then changed the volume from 4 to 5 gallons. It will be within 2 or 3 points... Lastly,...

I have 2- 15 gallon pots. I make 5 gallon batches all the time, and when I want to do a double batch, I can. It's the way to go in my opinion.
