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.

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.
