To get the full taste and flavor, the following method is recommendable:

Crush the cherries, but don't destroy the stones of the fruits.
Add 130 g sugar for each litre mash, Turbo-yeast (115 g for 100 l), and lactic acid until the mash has pH 3 to 3.5.
After that close the vessel and put an air lock on the top.
After one week add another 130 g sugar / litre.
And after another week 130 g sugar / litre again.

The fermentation process will last for about 4 to 6 weeks, depending on the temperature. The lower the temperature, the better the flavor of the brandy. Optimum temperature is between 15 and 19C.

When the fermentation is finished, the mash can be distilled.
