Default store bought juice

Hey all

so ive done a few ciders in the past using store bought juice from costco and i had some good results; only thing is they stopped selling the juice. Anyway i bought something close to it (same brand but different type) and ll the ciders have tasted like.....nothing. No flavour at all :S:S:S especially after they have aged for a few months.

I was just wondering what are some jucies that people have used with good results? and is juice from say an orchard that much better than the store bought stuff?

All the best

Much better from an orchard!!! I have had luck with Musselmann's cider and Indian Summer. You could always try a few 1 gal batches of different juices. Hope that helps.
