Barley malt.png Barley malt (2x) 822
Calquat keg.png Calquat keg (2x) 184

Process

The process of brewing is as follows:

  1. Head to a brewing vat (in the basement of the bar in Port Phasmatys or the upper floor of the east Keldagrim bar)
  2. Add 2 buckets of water to the vat
  3. Add 2 barley malt to the vat
  4. Optionally add the stuff
  5. Add the main ingredient of the ale
  6. Add one pot of ale yeast
  7. Return in a few days
  8. Collect the completed ale using 8 beer glasses or 2 calquat kegs

However, for cider, the process is as follows:

  1. Head to a vat
  2. Use the apple barrel near the vat to crush 16 cooking apples into 4 buckets of apple mush (if not buying apple mush from the grand exchange)
  3. Use the four buckets of apple mush on the vat
    • Water and barley malt are not required
  4. Add one pot of ale yeast

Analysis

  • The table is split into three sections:
    • Normal ale
    • Mature ale
    • Average profit when using the stuff. The stuff allows mature brews to be made with probability 50%.
  • The stuff cannot be added to cider.
  • Raw bacon is untradeable.
