Personally, I would be sure that the offset is at least set to 11 because you will clip the black point if you go any lower. The gain offers higher dynamic range or a deeper full well at the low end, but you also have a higher amount of read noise. There are some calculations involved with figuring out how to swamp the read noise and these will help you determine proper exposures times. Using unity gain or pushing to a gain of 20 will give you a read noise close to 1e, although this comes at the expense of dynamic range.
