Try using honey instead of brown sugar - some of the honey notes persist after fermentation and add complexity to the cider.

I've done it a couple of times with beer. Take your trub, mix with boiled and cooled water, sit in fridge for an hour or so until the yeast settles out, poor off most of the cloudy water, repeat the process several times and what you end up with is a pretty good amount of pure yeast for your next batch.

I know, dry yeast is cheap and easy to obtain but FREE is even cheeper. Also if you have harvested a not readily available type from your bottle conditioned local micro, it is nice to be able to continue using the strain.
