  8. Cover the jar with a dishtowel.
  9. It will take 2-5 days to ferment. (The longer it ferments, the more sugar with be eaten up by the bacteria. I usually ferment it 4-5 days, but it depends on how warm your kitchen is)
  10. You will know it is done when it is bubbly, fizzy, tangy and less sweet.
  11. When it is done, place in smaller containers and move to the refrigerator.
