Default Cyser

I was going to try a Cyser/Mead i have been looking a several recipes right now.
Would i be corrected to assume i can make any mead a cyser by using apple cider instead of water in a recipe?

Yes, but I think the technical definition also includes that 51% of the fermentable needs to be honey.

How that's done I'm not certain, but with 5 gals of AJ I would use at least 5 lbs of honey.

You'll find several cyser recipes in the Mead recipes section or through an internet search.
I've got a cinnimon-apple cyser working right now. I can't find my original recipe, but I believe it close to this (may technically be a metheglin from the cinnimon):
O.G.- 1.11
F.G.- 1.00

3 gallon apple juice
6lbs or 8lbs of honey (can't remember what I had)
2 cinnimon sticks
Lalvin D47 yeast
Yeast nutrient/energizer according to directions

Its 2 months old and I just racked it again onto another lb or honey. Light mouthfeel but not watery. Definite cinnimon taste, but balanced well with the honey and apple. Should be excellent around the holidays.
