Did you add any water to that mix? I bet it smells good...but without water, it's gonna be pretty heavy and syrupy. There's a lot of sugar there, so depending on how much volume you wind up with, it'll be pretty strong in alcohol. Good luck!

Ya, put about 2.5ish gallons. Filled the bucket up to about 3 inches from the top.

Got about 4 1/4 gallons? So, maybe half water.
