"This is traditionally made with birch juice, but that can be hard to find. This version is still tasty and refreshing! From Natashas Kitchen."

Step 1

Fill a 16 cup glass jar with 8 cups apple juice.

Step 2

Add sugar, yeast and molasses. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved, then add the water.

Step 3

Cover with multiple layers of cheesecloth or a cotton cloth and put a rubber band over the rim of the jar. Let stand on the counter for 18 hours, then refrigerate.

Once it's completely chilled, you can remove the cheese cloth and screw the lid on. If you put the lid on while it's warm, too much pressure will build up inside the jar.
