Interesting. I recently made a batch using generic apple juice (not cider), and it measure 1.044
All that extra "stuff" in cider adds 0.020 to the gravity, which I assume is mostly unfermentable? That would imply that hard cider made with cider, verses juice would be totally different, even if they tasted similar at the start.
