Default BoyScout cider?

Every year at this time the boy scouts sell Gallon Jugs of cider here.

Just wondering if any one has used it to make hard cider
and if iit would be any good for this type of thing?

Thanks, Geoff

Ask them if it has preservatives. For cider making, that's the major consideration. After that, it would be nice to know what kinds of apples, as tart apples make better hard cider.

Thanks for the response,

Yeah I`m Gonna have to ask questions, I don`t know whats in it.

I know it`s really cloudy stuff and if you leave it in the fridge for awhile it gets quite a bit of sediment in the bottom.

I`m thinking to make Graff with it , if it checks out ok.
