heh yeah... that's going to be more like 9-10% depending on how the yeast holds. I'd seriously consider a 100% dilution :P

Re-ran this with 1118; took a bloody age to ferment down (4 weeks), but the result is much better. Hit 1.000 exactly, so good for 5% ABV. I suspect with a double-pitch of 1118 and/or a little bicarb to balance the pH it would be quicker.
