Cider, as the world calls it, or "Hard Ciders" as Americans call it, is simply the fermentation of apples. Cider-making is similar to the process of wine-making, however cider-making utilizes fresh cider apples as the key base of fermentable juice instead of wine grapes. Yeast strains from all types can be used to make ciders.

From beer yeasts, to wine yeasts, to wild yeasts. Everything from apple varieties, yeast strains, filtration processes, and packaging techniques create the melting pot ability for vast differences of the ciders available in the modern cider market.
