It is then stirred till the sugar is dissolved and kept for 12 hours. Peptic enzyme is then added and after 12 hours yeast is added. The mixture is then stirred daily for the next three days along with the addition of the rest half of the sugar. For the next 4 days it is fermented. After the 4 days the liquid id strained through a nylon jelly bag or a cheese cloth to extract the juice. The extracted juice is then poured into the secondary fermenter and it is then air locked. This extract is then set for 30 days in a clean rack and checked every 30 days until the liquid becomes clear, which comes in about 3 to 4 rackings. After the liquid is clear, the taste is checked and it is bottled. If it is excessively dry, then stabilizer is added to add sweetness which is by adding dissolved sugar in a cup of water.
