Default starters for cider?

Does anyone regularly make starters for cider? If so, do you just use apple juice? Or do you use regular malt?

The man who intoxicates himself on bad whisky is sometimes moved to kill his wife and set his house on fire, but the victim of applejack is capable of blowing up a whole town with dynamite and of reciting original poetry to every surviving inhabitant.

Juice and yeast... You can add raw juice on top of the lees from a previous batch.
