It's about 10% of the OG. In other words, a wort of 1.050 will give you a beer of about 5%, probably a bit less.

Graham Wheeler's beer engine will give you a more exact figure, but is all depends on the finishing gravity. You can find it on this page.

There's an easy to use calculator on Brewer's Friend, you enter the SG and OG .
