I've been doing a lot of searching recently about planting cider apple trees. Thanks to a helpful link from gratus fermentatio, I found some other very good sites I thought I'd share. Even if you have seen them, I think its good to have this stuff in one place.

Craft Cider Making - Andrew Lea's site.
From what I've read, this guy is pretty much the John Palmer of the cider world. He also has a book called Craft Cider Making which I have on order.

Real Cider and Perry
This site has a lot of great info on sourcing cider apple cultivars and cider making in general. There is also some good info on building a mill and press.

Cider apple cultivars
This is the link gratus fermentatio sent me to. I haven't contacted the nursery, but it might be a good place to check if you are looking to start some sort of small orchard.

I've also ordered these books from Amazon:
Cider: Making, Using and Enjoying Sweet & Hard Cider
The Apple Grower: Guide for the organic orchardist (for the more adventurist looking to actually grow cider apples)

I'll post more as I find them. Feel free to add to the list!

The Proulx/Lew book you have on order from Amazon is great about talking about tree spacing, size, climate, etc.

I think Ben Watson's book does a little better talking about varieties.

Andrew's website has an excellent list for Nurseries here in the States that carry cider tree stock.

The Brewing Network (The Jamil SHow) has two really good podcasts (and one really bad one) on cidermaking. Avoid the 2/15/08 episode because the guys are so drunk they couldn't stick to the topic. It's fun to listen to but short on help. The others are good, though.
