Crap! You're right. I remember looking up the conversion, and 750ml is 0.189 gal, so about a quart. I used the calculator (Thanks!) and input 5.5 gallons at 4.4% plus 0.2 gallons at 15% and got a result of 4.77%. Whooptie-doo. Oh well, it's swmbo's and she'll like it. She'll just have to drink 2 or 3 to get a buzz. Thanks for your help!

It carbed a little in 2 days, got a gusher in 3, and 2 bombs out of 53 bottles during pasteurization. I knew better but did it anyway. Not enough room to cold crash then all. No injuries, but a couple dents in my brew kettle from the inside. Good times! And swmbo loves it, even with only 4.8% ABV! Mission accomplished!
