Home Brew Hard Cider from Scratch
Can one save some starter out and somehow keep it alive to use it for future batches? If so, how?
You mentioned vitamin B. I'd that just any tablet form or do you somehow crush it first?

Was wondering can you bottle the cider with sugar as you would with beer to give it fizz
i have used both sugar and honey at the same time before...it worked well. the honey dissolves really easily. It could've been a coincidence but it seemed to start really quickly and the alcohol level was surprisingly high after 3 days...go for it and err to the side of more sugars!! (it equals more alcohol)
no preservatives allowed...
baker's yeast still works...
Regular apple juice works awesome! I think it's even better than natural, home squeezed juice. What's more, you have to get ALL the organic material out of the juice before you try and ferment it. That must be a pain in the butt...buy the cheapest apple juice you can get, add sugar and yeast and enjoy...hard to go wrong i've found
What are some opinions on switching out the sugar with honey?
Yes, like Becvardan I too have used store bought apple juice with success. Like he said you want to make sure there are no preservatives in the juice, specifically "Sodium Benzoate" or "Potassium Sorbate" as these will hinder fermentation.
