Default Cider Newbie - Help?

I've been brewing one gallon batches of beer but am about to upgrade. Rather than have the six one gallon fermenters I have sit around collecting dust, I was thinking about using them to make some cider (or mead).

Can anyone point me in the direction of some good one-gallon cider threads? Or some tips/tricks?

If it were me I would just get a 6 gallon carboy and be done with it.

I live in a apartment where space is an issue, so one gallon at a time is about all I can sustain no clue what I would do with 5-6 gallons of cider at a time (along with all the homebrew beer I'm making). I'd be floating in bottles.

A easy way would be to just go out and buy a 1 gallon Apple juice and ferment it in the store jug by drilling a hole in the top and sticking your airlock there. Then you could rack off into your jugs that you already have laying around and wait for the cider to clear.
