Default How high will the ABV go on a cider with no sugar added?

When it's bone dry I mean.

When it's fermented bone dry how high will the ABV go on cider with no sugar added? I'm curious about this because often times the more simple flavours are better.

When it's fermented bone dry how high will the ABV go on cider with no sugar added? I'm just curious about this because I saw a cider recipe with no sugar added and there was no comment on ABV.

Assuming the juice they re using has an OG of 1.050, and a FG of 1.000, I'd say 6.65% ABV

A cider will probably finish at closer to .990, in my experience. so, more like 7.5% or so.
