Great, I think I'll stick to the clear juice as it's going to be slightly easier for me to get.
I'll look for Nottingham Ale yeast if I can find it here, it seems like many people favour it for ciders. And I've got a hydrometer so I'm all set
One other question, I'll have just bottled the lager I'm brewing at the moment in the bottles that came with the fermenter and so will need to get some more bottles for the cider. Is there any real advantages/disadvantages to using plastic bottles over glass? As I can either invest in some more plastic bottles, or a capper for use on recycled glass bottles.
