Default Temperature control & cleaner tasting cider

So yeah, home made cider is pretty damn intense. I know that Lager can be temperature controlled to produce a cleaner beer with less off flavours - does the same go for cider? Any advice if so?

Yes loggering always helps keep the off flavors from forming and keeps the beer clean and clear. I ferment in the primary at 64 degrees and lower the temp to 52 for the secondary process as cider yeast is not meant to be loggered and will die if the temp drops too low. You will need the yeast in suspension for bottle carbonation as well.
