Default Johnny Jump up with S-04

I'm wanting to try Summersolstice's Johnny Jump Up cider with Safbrew S-04, but am worried that the poor ol' ale yeast won't be up to the OG of ~1.08 plus bottle priming. Anyone worked with the stuff at this high of a gravity?
-Cheers!

Nope havent tried it,, but is there a reason not use champagne a another for that high of OG,, or is that just what you have on hand?

I'm thinking about shooting for an OG around 1.07 to be on the safe side. Thanks for the help.
