Fermented to complete dryness, the maximum theoretical for OG 1070 would be 9.2% v/v. If you get 8% that's good enough I'd say.

Alcohol content is figured by taking the sg at the start and the sg at the end.  The difference is % of alcohol.  If your sg it the beginning then record it and when it's done you can figure out your content.

Figuring the alcohol at the start is just a guess based on experience.
