Sounds good. Wouldn't have topped off with water but would rather have kept it as a standard cyser. Shouldn't matter too much I guess, just might taste a little 'thin'.

it was literally like a quart of water. I don't see it making much difference in the long run. I was just out of juice and didn't want that much headspace.

Headspace isn't a problem until you move it into secondary or after primary fermentation is complete. Instead of adding water I would have let it ferment then add some juice back in after primary. It'll come out fine though!
