2. It is forbidden to derive benefit from Orlah and Kil'ei ha'Kerem.
3. It is forbidden to derive benefit from Chametz on Pesach.
4. Rav says the Halachah follows the view of Raban Shimon ben Gamliel when a barrel of Yayin Nesech is mixed with other barrels, but not if wine of Yayin Nesech is mixed with other wine. Shmuel says the Halachah follows Raban Shimon ben Gamliel even when wine of Yayin Nesech is mixed with other wine.
5. It is normal for a little bit of wine to be used in the tarring process. Therefore, it must be wiped clean.
6. If the stone press was tarred and was also used to press wine, the tar must be peeled off. The wine penetrates the cracks in the tar.
7. Rebbi agrees with the Rabanan regarding earthenware containers belonging to a Nochri which are used for storing wine. It is not sufficient to wipe them down, since the containers hold wine over long periods. Instead, they must be filled with water for there days. The water must be changed every day.
8. If it was not tarred, everyone agrees that it must merely be wiped down and it is permitted.
