Joe's Ancient Orange Mead recipe uses bread yeast. I've done it, and it was good. The only thing I'd be concerned about is the attenuation of the bread yeast. In Joe's mead, the end result is very sweet. In a 1.070 cider, I'm thinking the results would also be very sweet, and probably not as good as using an ale yeast or wine yeast.
