Fermenter - More Information

The Fermenter is a device primarily used for brewing Meads into Potions. This item requires Bronze, meaning you'll need to mine Copper and Tin Ore to get it.

"Too Exposed" Error - Proper Placement


↑ The above enclosure is too exposed - the Fermenters won't work properly.

Note that the Fermenter must have a roof over it to function properly. You'll have to ensure that it is in a "sheltered" space. All this usually requires is walls and a roof - it doesn't have to be completely enclosed.


↑ An enclosure that is successfully "sheltered" - The fermenters function without any problems.

Potions Are Key For Progression

Having the right type of potion available will be absolutely essential as you progress the game. Poison Resistance potions will help you when exploring the Swamp, while Frost Resistance will help you withstand the cold of the Mountain biome.

Tip! Putting in one mead base will produce a total of 6 potions. For a single player game, one Fermenter should be enough. If you're playing co-op with many other players, however, it might be beneficial to have more than one of these structures up.

Fermenter Time - How Long Does It Take?

Requires 2 In-Game Days To Complete


The Fermenter takes a total of 2 in-game days to finish brewing a potion. This process cannot be rushed, so you'll have to simply wait patiently. Remember that you can skip nights by sleeping in a bed!
