Any idea what the specific gravity is for gallon of store bought apple juice?

I forgot to write down my OG for Edworts Apfelwein. Won't kill anything and won't impact the final result, just trying to clean up my software.

I freakin HATE the dumb dart!!!!

You could buy another gallon, take a reading and use the juice in your next batch, (start one within 2 weeks).

Juice made from North American dessert apples will have a specific gravity between 1.040 and 1.050 and if allowed to ferment fully, will result in a hard cider with around 5.5 to 6.5 percent alcohol content.

Thanks to both of you. Summersosltice, I'll use that for the short term calcs. Next batch, I'll remember to take the reading on a bottle and before pitching the yeast.
