Without sugar / dextrose added.

I measured mine after I added my sugar per Ed Wort's Apfelwein recipe.

I would like Mott's 100% apple juice if possible; but any OG's without sugar will do as I am looking for a range so that I don't over sweeten.

Thanks in advance!

Off-the-shelf apple juice has measured (for me) 1.050 to 1.052. Hope that helps.

Sounds about right, I tried a 2 to 1 apple juice pineapple juice blend and got the same, about 1.050.

Usually between 1.048 and 1.050 for most apple juices I've used.

Also, you can calculate it from the number of grams of sugars on the label. 1 gr per 100 ml is one Brix.
