- Cover primary fermenter.
- Wait 24 hours, then add yeast and re-cover primary fermenter.
- Stir daily, check S.G..
- When S.G. reaches 1.040 (usually 3-5 days), syphon juice
into glass container and attach airlock.
- When S.G. reaches 1.000 (fermentation complete) syphon
juice off sediment into clean glass container. Re-attach
