    Hello everyone! We have added the Brewery plugin to the server. It allows you to produce alcohol, drink said alcohol, and get drunk from it. There are quite a few brews in the config currently for you to find.

    Here's a bit of info:
    Drinking alcohol gets you drunk, which makes you slur your speech in chat, as if you were drunk.
    You will get less drunk over time.
    Eating cake, cookies, milk, or bread will decrease your drunkenness.
    Brews have different levels of quality, and their names reflect this. For example, bad quality absinthe is called "Poor Absinthe," normal/average quality is just "Absinthe," and good/high quality is "Strong Absinthe." So if in your experiments you stumble upon a drink but by its name it isn't of the best quality, try tweaking your recipe until you perfect it.

    In this post I am going to outline how to brew your own alcohol.

    If you're more of a visual person, or just don't like reading here is a video tutorial, though the recipes used may not match up with ours:


    Fermenting
    Cauldrons are used to ferment. The cauldron is the birthplace of all brews. Place a cauldron above either fire or lava:

    The next thing you will need to do is fill your cauldron with water and add your ingredients. I will include a few recipes for some basic brews. For getting perfect brews, you need to ferment them in the cauldron for a specific amount of time. You can see the amount of time that your ingredients have been fermenting by right-clicking your cauldron with a clock, which will give you a message like this:

    Once you have fermented your ingredients for the correct amount of time, take out your masterpiece in progress with glass bottles. Cauldrons hold 3 bottles worth of liquid. After extracting the fermented liquid, depending on the brew, you may need to either distill it in a brewing stand or age it in a barrel.

    Distilling
    Some brews need to be distilled. Distilling is done using glowstone in a brewing stand:

    Glowstone is not consumed by distilling (so, to clarify, one would do just fine). Just as with fermenting, brews will take different amounts of time to distill. For example, this strong absinthe was distilled 4 times:

    Aging
    Some brews need to be aged in barrels. Barrels can be created from any wood type, and certain brews require certain wood types to be used for aging:

    There are two sizes of barrels:

    The smaller barrel has 9 slots (one row of inventory), the bigger barrel has the same storage as a single chest (3 rows of inventory, 27 slots).

    To make a small barrel you just need 8 stairs. Place them as seen in the photos above and place a sign on the bottom right of one of the faces and write on the first line "Barrel", hit done, and you will see this message:

    The large barrel is constructed as seen here:

    You will need 16 stairs, 18 planks, a fence, and of course a sign.

    As mentioned earlier, brews will take various amounts of time to age.

    Recipes
    There are a decent amount of brews currently in the config, with more likely to be added in the future. It will be a challenge to find them. Here are a couple to get you started.
    Absinthe:
    Ingredients: 15 grass
    Ferment: 5 minutes
    Distill: 6 times

    Ale:
    Ingredients: 9 wheat
    Ferment: 8 minutes
    Age: In oak barrel for 2 years

    Tea:
    Ingredients: 2 milk buckets, 6 leaves
    Ferment: 3 minutes​
