Default Apple Juice? or Apple Cider?

Iam looking around for the answer and i couldnt find it. But what is the difference can you make a batch with eather of the two? I have a local orchard and i wanted to use their apples but they only have apple cider not juice? Is their a difference? What do you think?

Cider is an unclear version of apple juice. Get more "goodies" in the cider.

Local apple cider may not be pasteurized. If so, someone more experienced with winemaking/cider making could help you out.

There is no official difference between apple cider and apple juice in the US. In England cider is fermented and juice is not.

However it is usually true that cider is fresh pressed from apples while juice is made from concentrate. Cider is usually pasteurized but often unfiltered. Juice will be pasteurized and filtered as part of the concentration process.

There are ofcourse many exceptions to these generalities. Most apple juice in the US is concentrated so that it can more easily be stored for a longer time. The concentrate will last much longer without spoiling and takes up less room to store. This allows companies like Motts to have a regular supply of apple juice available to sell the consumer while apple cider is usually only available from local orchards in the fall and winter.

I think cider tastes much better than juice and would be my choice for making hard cider or cyser.

You should also keep in mind that cider we take a longer time to clear and may require repeated rackings, while apple juice does not because everything that you want to settle out and clear has been filtered out, so the only sediment will be yeast. Apple juice can be ready for bottling in 30 days, while cider can take severalmonths to clear.
