    Can you bottle condition cider to create carbonation?

    Yes, I do it all the time. Use the same priming calculations that you would for beer.

    Only for a dry cider. Don't try this with anything backsweetened with fermentable sugar. That's asking for bottle bombs

    Or if you keg, I use an inline carb setup and have cider on tap 24/7/365.
