if it was expected to work for 1.058, it will work for 1.064. There is not much difference in the OG.

Whitbread ale yeast (AKA safale04) can handle 11% ABV with careful handling. So, a OG of 1.064 will be a walk.

i just ordered another 11.5 g packet so all is good. Ive never used dry, and im all about yeast starters, i really wanted to pitch 2 packs (that seems to be what most recipe's call for)

im ocd when it comes to lag times...

I've had very good success pitching one pack of safale04. The red that's burping right now used one pack and started in less than 12 hours.
