I have never made sima (finnish lemon mead-ish) before, but want to try. I have found a recipe that seems nice, it's as follows:
4 litres of water
2 lemons (juice and zest)
2 oranges
3 dl brown sugar
500 gr honey
Ca 20 pieces of allspice
125 g of raisins
Ale yeast

However, I would like to use wild yeast instead (In the past I have made ginger ale using wild yeast made from apricots). My question is, how much wild yeast would be needed for the above recipe? When I made ginger ale I used 2, 5 dl of liquid wild yeast to about three litres of water.
