No, but I know folks who do. Its a good idea for all the reasons beer brewers do it. I'd love to carb one of my sweet ciders, but I can't have equipment in my condo. :-(

keg it! i keg all of my semi-sweet ciders, then bottle some from the keg (sweet ciders still need to be stabilized or pasteurized if you bottle from the keg), and i bottle condition all of my dry ciders, which take many months to mature. both ways are great

I usually keg into a tap-a-draft for maximum portability.
