Sima manufacturing.

No end to these sima posts! :)

The recipe I used.

2 lemons
500 gram Farin (Brown?) sugar
300 gram sugar
Some raisins
6 liter water
1/4 teaspoon of yeast (preferably wet yeast)



Washed the lemons carefully, brushed them. Carved off the peel, squeezed out the lemon juice. The second lemon I peeled and sliced the lemon and peels.

While doing this I boiled half of the water (3 liter).

Put the lemon peels and lemon parts in the bucket, poured in the sugars and added the hot water, gave it a stir, added the lemon juice I had squeezed.

Added the rest of the water, when the liquid is lukewarm I added the yeast and gave it a new stir. Then I let the bucket stand over the night (covered with a frying pan).

Bottled it in the morning, but first I added 1 table spoon of sugar and a few raising in each bottle, put the bottles in a cool space. Wait till the raisins start to raise from the carbon-dioxide that is created when the sima ferments. This should take a couple of days, perhaps three. Consume within a week.



Now I just have to sit and wait til it's ready, hope it's soon. Already tasted some and it tastes almost like it should even if the fermentation isn't ready yet.

  1. Well, yes, compared to just open a bottle of ready soda. :)
