Sima is a Finnish homebrew. It is mild and non-alcoholic; its main
purpose is for serving to children during May 1st celebrations (the
biggest carnival day in Finland).

- 1/2 kilogram, brown sugar
- 1/2 kilogram, white sugar
- 2-3 lemons
- 5 liters water
- 1/4-1/2 teaspoon, yeast
- raisins and sugar for bottling
Wash the lemons thoroughly and peel the yellow skin. Pour the boiling
water on the lemon skins and sugars. Remove the white skin from the
lemons and slice the lemons crosswise. Add the slices into the slightly
cooled liquid. Let cool until the liquid is at body temperature. Add the
yeast and let ferment for a day to day and a half. When the drink is
bottled, remove the lemon slices and skins. Add a spoonful of sugar and
some raisins to every bottle. Close the bottles loosely. After a day,
tighten the caps and move the bottles to refrigerator. The drink is
ready when the raisins have risen from the bottom to surface.
