I just made my first cyser, recipe as follows;

4 gal. apple juice @ 1.050
.5 lb. brown sugar
added honey to bring o.g. to 1.080
1 pkg. safale-04

my question is safale-04 able to handle this gravity, or will I have to add a more alcohol tolerant yeast strain?

thanks for the response, other than that how does the recipe look?I would have liked to use more honey, but my wife the bee-keeper was kind of p#ssed about me using what was supossed to be christmas presents.The temptation was too great, fresh honey from the backyard.What's a guy to do?

Looks good, it's a cyser, so it is hard to go wrong
