Brewing Alcohol

In the ReeferCraft Factions server it is possible to brew your own booze! The booze will make you drunk and the quality of the liquor will decide if your drunk-time will be a pleasant time or not.

How does it work?

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


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


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 center. 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.


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.

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 bread, and drinking milk.
