For all you guys heading down this route:
You can take your cidermaking to the next level by looking into making seasonal ciders from freshly picked and juiced apples. I do warn you though that madness lies down that road. Soon you will have a cider press. Then you will have an orchard. Cider will consume your life and you will die a broken man from sheer sexual exhaustion.
Have a good read of this http://www.cider.org.uk/frameset.htm and you will understand how much cider will consume your life.
