Default first time making cider

Hi all I have brewed a couple of ales but want to brew a cider for the summer am I right in thinking I only need apple juice, sugar and yeast for a basic cider ?

yep just make sure there is no preservatives in the juice. yeast nutrient really kick starts things as well. you'll need an airlock for ur carboy while fermenting if you didn't know that.

Are there any threads on the basics of cider? Such as if it Ages well, ferment time, etc.?

tons upon tons. ferment time varies based upon yeast fermenting temp. a lot can effect time. just check through the cider forums. there's tons of good info from experienced apple jackers.
