In the Viking-inspired world of Valheim, mead is essential for progression in the game as it provides a buff for your fights. In this guide we will show you how to make mead in Valheim, guiding you through each and every step in making Mead.
How to Make Mead in Valheim
Mead making can be a long process if you are not aware of its associated in-game mechanics.
Mead Making is an easy but long process as it takes a couple of in-game days to ferment potions and mead in the fermenter. So, you have to be patient.
So here are the steps to making mead:
Collect the Ingredients
There are several types of Meads in Valheim. You have to collect the ingredients required for the Mead Recipe that you are making, like Honey, blueberries, dandelions and Bloodbag etc.
Make Mead Base
Then, you have to make your Mead Base in the Cauldron that you have crafted for this very purpose.
Ferment the Mead
After you have made the Mead Base, put it in the fermenter and after a couple of in-game days, your Mead will be fermented. The Mead is ready to be used.
It’s better to have multiple fermenters as it takes days to ferment a single batch and with more than 1 fermenter, you will have multiple batches of Mead in your hands.
How to create a Cauldron?
In Valheim, a cauldron is a replaceable item that requires a fire source underneath. The cauldron is used to create mead base recipes and food items.
To build a cauldron, you need a hammer and 10 pieces of Tin. To make a mead base, you need a Cauldron and to create a cauldron, you need a Smelter beforehand to melt the tin bars.
The smelter is used for smelting ores and creating bars from them.
How to create a Fermenter for Mead?
A fermenter is a replaceable item that requires a cover above it to work and is used to create potion from Mead based recipes.
The fermenter is the upgraded Cauldron that is used in fermenting and brewing the Mead.
To upgrade your Cauldron into a Fermenter, you need the following items:
- 30 Fine Wood
- 5 Bronze
- 10 Resin
Bronze can be created from copper and tin. Mix them together to make bronze.
