Cider is very easy to make. Ecopunk was lucky enough to get some free equipment through Freecycle but you can easily make the necessary equipment yourself.
Any food grade container can be used to ferment apple juice. The container will need a bubbler to exhaust carbon dioxide gas from the fermentation process and to prevent anything from entering and spoiling the cider.
A bubbler can be made by putting one end of a plastic tube into your fermenting container and sealing around it with some cotton wool or cloth.
The other end of the tube is put into a container of water so the carbon dioxide can exhaust as bubbles through the water. The water also acts as a barrier, preventing anything from entering the tube and finding its way into the fermentation vessel.
Here are two videos ecopunk created for making Turbo Cider.
Turbo cider (part 1) shows how to start the fermentation process.
Turbo cider (part 2) shows how to "rack off" the cider into bottles.
