Brewing

This is not your standard potion brewing. The Brewery plugin is all about alcohol, and the pursuit of it's pleasures. Adding a number of custom potions, and a drunkenness mechanic, this plugin always offers a great time.

Master the art of brewing through fermenting, distilling and barrel aging a variety of concoctions. Experience how, from simple ingredients, through hard work, and persistence, a cool beer is created. Distill high-proof liquor, which gets that unique taste after some aging in wooden barrels. Celebrate the biggest feasts you can imagine and always maintain a cheerful atmosphere. Fill the taverns with laughter and loud music, while the drunkards scuffle on the streets.

Usage

It's time to brew. Unlike in vanilla Minecraft it is not as simple as adding an Ingredient to a Brewing Stand and waiting for it to finish. Depending on the recipe, the process can be difficult and time consuming. Some recipes require precision when it comes to ingredients and timing. If you aren't careful, the batch could have unintended side effects, or be ruined altogether.

Cooking / Fermenting

The first step is cooking the ingredients.

  1. Place a cauldron over fire

  2. Fill it with water

  3. Use ingredients on the cauldron to add them

  4. Wait while they cook, checking the time with a clock

  5. Fill glass bottles from the cauldron when done

Distilling

  • Place a Glowstone dust in the top slot of a brewing stand as a filter. (It won't be consumed)

  • Load your filled bottles into the brewing stand

Aging

Wooden barrels are required for aging. They have inventories where you can store brews while they age. There are two barrel sizes, and most recipes require a specific type of wood.

Small barrel

  • 8 wood stairs

  • 1 sign

Build a barrel shape with the stairs. Then, place a sign on the front-side bottom-right with Barrel on the top line. You will get a confirmation: Barrel created.

Big barrel

  • 18 wood planks

  • 16 wood stairs

  • 5 wood fence

  • 1 sign

Build barrel matching the image below, making sure to leave 1 empty space at the centre. Then, attach a sign with Barrel on the top line. You will get a confirmation in chat.

You may remove the sign from a big barrel after creating it.


Brew Sealing - for shop plugins

You can just give your created Brews to other Players and they might even put them back into a Barrel to keep ageing them. But most Shop-Plugins require sold items to be exactly equal and this is where sealing comes in. Imagine it like putting a seal on the bottle.

  • To sell Brews using Shop-Plugins, you will need to seal them using the Brew Sealing Table.

  • It is crafted with 2 Bottles over 4 Planks

  • Putting a Brew into the Sealing table will equalise it, making it equal to other Brews that have been brewed similarly.

  • Sealed Brews cannot be aged or modified any further and they don't show their details anymore



Being Drunk

The alcohol inside a brew is applied when consumed. There are a variety of effects associated with alcohol level.

  • A drunk player may not be able to walk normally. Their movements become unpredictable, making it difficult to walk straight.

  • Status effects such as Blindness, Confusion, and Poison can be inflicted, especially with stronger brews.

  • The chat will be altered depending on drunkenness. Anything a drunk player writes may be slurred, sometimes to the point where it's incomprehensible.

  • When drinking a lot, there is a chance of vomiting

  • After logging off, the a player may have difficulties reaching their character, and may not be able to log in for a while.

  • Over-drinking could cause a player to black out(disconnect), and wake up in a strange place.

Sobering Up

After drinking it can take a while for the alcohol to completely wear off. During that time, your alcohol level will steadily decrease. This process can be accelerated by eating food and drinking milk &/or honey.
