Oh, 5% or even 6% is well within the limits for most yeasts. Your champagne yeast will probably be capable of 18%.

I'm not sure what you mean by mellow out, but it seemed pretty light without any dominating flavors when we tasted it this weekend. But again, in hindsight I don't think we should have added as much water from the boiled spices.

What do you guys think? Would it have been better to use 5 gallons of cider and boil the spices in one of the gallons of cider?
