Leave it all to roam in a warm place, inaccessible to sunlight, on 4-5 days. Check the mixture periodically by mixing it with a wooden stick. It is enough to carry out this procedure once a day.
Step 3: the second stage of fermentation.
After 4-5 days check the taste, if necessary, add more sugar, but not immediately, but gradually, in a glass at a time.
Install a stopper with a water lock on the container with wine or just a tight medical glove, puncture a hole in the index finger.
Leave everything to roam in a warm and dark place still on 20-22 days. Have a wine tasting once a week to follow the process.
