Should work. But keep a close eye on the cider - the rate of flavour transfer can vary greatly barrel-to-barrel. If you don't keep a close eye on things your cider may end up tasting like a woodpile. Even the stout needs some monitoring, although the more robust flavour of the beer gives you more leeway.
