Default First Cider

I'm getting ready to make my first hard cider, any advice?? Is it carbonated? I've seen the additive kits for sale to add to the cider to get things going. I'm pretty new to homebrew so this will be my fourth brew but first cider. Thanks

It is awesome. My 1st batch 1/2 still, 1/2 carb'd, my wife and her friends especially love it.

If you want it sweet, put a drop of honey in the glass, pour the dry cider over it.
