2. Slice (julienne) carrot
3. Mix all and add salt
4. Dump all into the 4 L jar until juice will come up and cover a mixture
5. Put some weight to keep the mix always under the juice. I use a glass of water
6. Put in the dark (no direct sun) place with room temperature (20°C / 70°F) for 3 days. During fermentation gas will pull out the juice. Keep juice separately and add when you will store the product in the refrigerator.
