Default Types of cider?

I just finished boiling a batch of pale ale and am considering doing some cider next. We really like the sparkling cider we have had in Normandy, and my wife also likes the dry ciders she has had in pubs in the UK.

My question is are these fundamentally different products, or is it just that the "French style" uses champagne yeast?

Thanks in advance for any help.

The difference would be adding fermentables like priming sugar at bottling time, or not.

Really, a cider is pretty much cider... some are dry Vs. sweet, and some are sparkling Vs. still, but that's all a matter of small differences in the recipe. Try some different recipes, and figure out what you like.

If you like the dry ciders from UK, I would recommend trying EdWort's Apfelwein recipe... my mother tried some and loved it, she said it tasted exactly like what she drank in Ireland...
