Towny Brewing Drinks

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 you 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.
  1. Place cauldron over a Fire or other heat source
  2. Fill it with water
  3. Add ingredients with a right-click
  4. Wait a few minutes while they ferment
  5. Fill in glass bottles

Use a clock on a cauldron, if you want to know the time the ingredients have been fermenting.

Some recipes don't need distilling.
  1. Put the bottle with ferment into the brewing stand
  2. Put glowstone dust as filter on top into the brewing stand (The filter will not be consumed)

A barrel is needed for aging.

A barrel can be used for aging of a few brews. Simply craft and place the barrel and put the brews inside.

You can also build bigger barrels. They can be built in two ways:

Small barrel
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
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 the first Line:

Message "Barrel created" should appear
You may remove the sign from the big barrel after creating it.

Open the barrel by clicking on it.

Put the bottles into the barrels for aging.
Depending on the recipe, the type of wood used for building the barrel may alter the quality of the aged brew. The small minecraft barrel is always of wood type oak.

The Barrel should not be destroyed while aging, as it would leak the brews.

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.
  • The player may not be able to walk normally anymore, they will weave, making it almost impossible to walk straight
  • Effects like blindness, confusion, poison etc. occur
  • The chat will be altered depending on drunkenness, many things players write may be incomprehensible, sometimes even senseless
  • If the alcohol particularly strong, it may have poisonous effects
  • After drinking a lot, there is a chance of vomiting
  • When logging off, the player may have difficulties reaching his character, thus some logins afterwards may be denied
  • After overdrinking, the player may faint (disconnect)
Getting Sober
After drinking it takes a while until the alcohol is completely gone. During that time the alcohol level is steadily decreasing.
  • When logging off extremely drunk, it may happen that, if the player logs back in after a while, they may find themselves in a completely unknown place in the middle of nowhere having no idea how they got there.
  • But if they log back in after some hours or next morning, they will find themselves without any memories of what happened.
  • Also if the Alcohol was not of best quality, the player may face some bad type of hangover (slowness and hunger).
