Can you just take readings periodically and cold crash at a specific number to ensure a less dry cider? Does that kill remaining yeast. Or perhaps add something to kill them off.

Will the Belgium yeast peak at a specific abv which could leave me with some sweetness
You sure can...I usually use a notty. Ale yeast for cider thot I'd do a d47. I like to cold crash around 1.020 to 1.010 if I catch it at 1.020 I dnt prime just bottle.and pasteurize. ( when its carbed of coarse) if I miss it I prime then bottle and past. ... I get around 5.5 to 6.5 abv....but I dnt have age as long as the higher abv guys do.
