Default Long time beer brewer first time cider maker needs advice.

So I have been home brewing beer for a while now and am thinking of making cider. Is there anything more than a typical homebrew setup I need? Do you still bottle carb like beer? Do you do a boil like beer? Do you use apples or just apple juice/ cider? Any other advice or resources would be awesome.

Give this recipe a shot. The recipe should answer all your questions.

It's for an English style, dry, bottle-carbed cider from store-bought juice.
