+1 to what dinerstick said. Making cider is pretty simple, making great cider takes a little knowledge.
1. grind apples.
2. Press pomace (ground up apples) to extract juice.
3. Add sugar* (optional)
4. Add yeast* (optional)
5. Place under airlock & wait a couple months.
6. Age it a few months* (optional)
7. Bottle or keg & allow to condition, serve & enjoy!
You could also use a home juicing machine to juice the apples instead of grinding & pressing.
You can add sugar (or not) in almost any form, IE: white table sugar, brown sugar, molasses, honey, maple syrup, etc...
Some choose to allow a wild yeast to ferment their cider, most of us use commercially produced yeast strains.
Hope this info helps. Regards, GF.
