You take the ending sg and subtract that from the starting sg and then multiply the answer by 131.4 in example. 1.095 - .995 = 0.1 x 131.4 = abv of 13.14%

A specific gravity of 1.060 means a potential alcohol of approx. 7.5%. 1.074 for your peach cider will result in about 9.3% alcohol.

I tried to send you a web site where you could print out the chart you need but apparently this forum blocks that info. If you request the same question on the midwest wine forum I'll be able to furnish that address.

A formula you may be interested in:

Starting SG minus Ending SG divided by .00736 equals approx percent alcohol.

The web site to the chart is also listed on this forum under how much sugar to add. The Jack Keller hydrometer area. Also a lot of other info there about hydrometers.
