Hmm....guess i'm going to need bottles, caps, and a capper then
As for my assumption, I was dead on. Fermentation began within three hours, but nothing through the airlock. 24 hours in there was a bubble every 2-3 minutes. As of 6PM yesterday (Wed) it was pushing a bubble out every 30 seconds or so, and it's foaming like crazy.
So no worries on that, the cider will work just fine.
