my gramps makes his hard cider the real old fashioned way -
open cider
place in cellar with lid on
hope that it doesn't get infected

course, you get the best results with cider from the orchard, the type that hasn't been pasteurized (still got some goodies in it)

I haven't done it myself (this paragraphs idea that is), but i'd guess you could just add any ale yeast and place an airlock on there and you'd be good to go (same idea, you've got plenty of fermentables in there) i'd just try cheap dry yeast first so you dont loose out if things go wrong

Figured it.

In the UK we have apple juice and Cider.

One is unfermented and the other is fermented.

Cider is apple juice!

Hard cider is just Cider!

I thought apple juice was juice from apples.
Hard cider is apple juice fermented to have alchaol.
What is cider than? Cause cider taste a lot different than apple juice?

In the UK Cider = Fermented Apple Juice i.e. Hard Cider.

Apple juice is just plain apple juice.
