Korean Text from Eumshik Dimibang Ju Hea (an updated version of the original text)

삼해주(三亥酒) 정월 첫 해일에 찹쌀 서 되를 깨끗이 씻어 가루를 내어라. (그것으로) 풀을 쑤어 식거든 누룩 한 되를 섞어 두어라. 둘째 해일에 멥쌀 서 말을 깨끗이 씻어 가루를 내어라. (그것으로) 구멍떡을 만들어 미지근할 때 망울이 없게 쳐라. 차게 식거든 먼저 한 것의 밑(=첫해일에 해 놓은 것의 밑)에 섞어 넣어라. 셋째 해일에 또 그렇게 하여라.

술을 이어서 (계속) 쓰고자 할 때는 구월이 되도록 이렇게 하면, 한 해의 해일(亥日)이 다하도록 이렇게 해도 좋으니라.
