Hi!
Most dilution calculators need the OG, and that's the one figure you don't have.
An ABV calculator suggests that your OG was 1065 - is this correct?
The formula is V1C1 = V2C2 (V= Volume C = Concentration)
or, rearranging, V2 = (V1C1)/C2
(4.5 x 0.82)/0.55 = 6.709, say 6.71
6.71 - 4.5 = 2.21, so you are correct.

1065 is exactly what I got with hydrometer reading
