Just found this thread,
here's a simple inexpensive one i put together in febuary , the ABV almost makes it an apple wine, but call it what you want.
2 gallons sam's choice apple juice from wal-mart
1 lb. brown sugar, hetaed and dissolved in 4 cups juice
1 pkt 5g rehydrated lalvin D47
primaried 2-3 weeks
secondary for 2 weeks
then bottle.
tried one after two weeks. very good will get better with age.
O.G. 1,075
f.g. 1.002
ABV 9.6%

Here is one that works fine:
5 gallons motts apple juice.
1 pound raw sugar
Nutrient to manufacturers specs.

Mix it all together and aerate well.

Pitch 2 packs of redstar champagne yeast (an interesting bready flavor and a somewhat restrained fermenter visually)

When fermentation is complete keg, prime with 1/2 cup priming sugar.
Letting it sit for a week or so at about 40 degrees does WONDERS before serving.

i suggest against the champagne yeast even if you are going to do a sweet style. I find that they come out with a specific flavor that is a little overpowering of the fruity aroma and therefor effects the flavor greatly. try a american lager yeast, and ferment in "ale" temps. You will find that this should add another note of complexity to your cider and the lager yeast generally have a higher attenuation than ale yeast and will be able to tear that high OG down to a comfortable level.

just my thoughts.
