Default Skeeter Pee ABV

M planning my first batch of skeeter pee, but I'm wanting to drop the alcohol a bit. I'm thinking about keeping it closer to 6% and putting it in a keg. Will i need to change the amount of juice or tannin to keep the profile correct, or will I be ok just cutting back on sugar?

Also, from pitch to glass, roughly how long does this take? I'm trying to plan my carboy s schedule (maybe I should just buy more )

alcohol only adds to the bight so leaving everything else the same and reducing the original sugar gives you a brighter, better taste IMHO No need to change anything else.

less sugar will be faster but it is to hard to say exactly when because of the temp you ferment at and or the yeast you use.

If it ferments out slow... months not weeks, then you don't have to age it nearly as long to get good flavors. Either way time is the key when making ciders and wines."

I've had batches ready to bottle in as little as 20 days. Starting with a good yeast population helps tremendously.
