Collect the resulting juice and oilcake in a 10 liter container, cover with gauze and put in a warm place with a temperature of 25-28 degrees for 2-3 days for fermentation. It is better to use a special culture of wine yeast. Depending on the temperature conditions on the 2nd or 3rd day of fermentation, the cake rises, and the juice is collected in the lower part of the container.
After about a week, it should be decanted through a colander into an enameled bucket, and the cake should be pressed with your hands over the colander. Then the juice needs to be drained into a clean container, set a water lock and put in for fermentation. Fermentation lasts from 12 to 20 days (depending on temperature conditions).
