My first cider, I used Red Star Pasteur Champagne dry yeast. Pitched it at 4 pm and it was doing 1 bubble/min. by 8 AM, and 1 - 2 bubbles/min. by 48 Hrs.

My second cider, I pitched Wyeast 4766 smack pack yeast about 10 PM last night, and this morning I've seen 1 or 2 bubbles. I also used yeast nutrient in this one.

I think aeration is about the most important step in getting a quick start.
