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!

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