I can probably take a couple measurements tonight when I start my batches.
Despite the "good crop", its taking time and the juice is a little late this year. It's also still more expensive than usual.
EDIT: The measurement I took on my first 5g batch of the year yielded right at 1.050 (Skagit Fresh as the cider base), maybe a tiny bit heavier than that. I've got a couple smaller 1g test batches using the same brand's Apple/Blueberry and Apple/Cherry that I expect are in the same ballpark as the apple juice is far and away the main ingredient.
Not sure if Skagit Fresh could be called typical, but it is local to Northwestern Washington.
