    Is there any reason I couldn’t just use a 5 gallon carboy for making this recipe ?

    apologies if its in the article and I missed it but make sure if you are buying cider from the store that it doesn’t include potassium sorbate. that is a yeast inhibitor and if your cider has it in it then the yeast can’t do its work.
