Yes, I'm following a US recipe that calls for non-alcoh apple cider and all spice, bay, salt, and water. I guess I'll see how it goes!

I don't have direct experience. It is likely to produce a somewhat different flavor but probably equally as good. In the US it is more common to use non-alcoholic cider in brining.

Yes, you could use alcoholic apple cider for brining

I guess the important question I should have asked is, do you think the fermentation will change the flavor of the turkey significantly? I'm living in the UK and it seems more common to buy hard cider rather than non-alcoholic; trying to predict the effect. Thanks very much!
