How to use brewery?
It is time to brew some Potions. Unlike in vanilla Minecraft it is not as easy as adding an Ingredient to a Brewing Stand and waiting for it to finish. Depending on the Recipe the whole process can be difficult and time consuming. Some Recipes may need a high precision when it comes to Ingredients or any other step in the process. If one step was not good enough, the quality of the Potions may suffer, leading to side effects like bad alcohol and other toxics.
This new difficulty of brewing of the good stuff makes only sense, if the players are not aware of the exact Recipes for at least the more valuable Potions (like Rum). This makes high quality Potions worth much more and an experimenting and perfecting of the Brewing Process would be promoted.
Depending on the Recipe, some Steps may not be needed, the following instruction describes the common procedure of brewing.
Step one consists of Fermenting the fresh Ingredients.
Use a clock on a cauldron, if you want to know the time the ingredients have been fermenting.
Some Recipes don't need distilling.
A barrel is needed for aging.
You can also build bigger barrels. They can be built in two ways:
Small barrel | 9 Slots
Use 8 wooden stairs to build a barrel shape.
Place a Sign on the lower right side and write "Barrel" in the upper Line:
Message "Barrel created" should appear.
Big barrel | 27 Slots
Use 5 Fences, 16 Wooden stairs, and 18 wood planks to build a barrel shape. Attach a Spigot (Fence) and a Sign that has "Barrel" written on it:
Message "Barrel created" should appear
You may remove the Sign from the Big Barrel after creating it.
Open the Barrel by clicking on it.
The Amount of Alcohol inside the Brew will be applied to the player when drinking. Depending on the quality of it, that may have different effects.
After drinking it takes a while until the alcohol is completely gone. During that time the alcohol level is steadily decreasing. Also it can be decreased through consuming of items defined in the config.
Some recipes are more difficult to master, others rather easy. Thats also why some of the recipes here are kept a bit more vague.
