Mead can be stored in a Barrel.

Mead buffs the effects of Vegetables and Meat by 0.5%, Cheese by 1.0% per gulp at Q10. Each drink will also add a negative satiation against itself, thus granting diminishing return on the buff.

(Mead has changed, tested 2/18/2020, buffed vegetables, game, and nuts and seeds)

How to Acquire

Build a Demijohn and fill it with Mead Must. Must turns to Mead after ?? [Verify: fermentation time.]. In order to halt the fermented mead's further progression into Vinegar, one must store it in a barrel or a Drinking Horn. CONFIRMED: Mead stored in a Drinking Horn will turn into Vinegar overtime.

How to Use

The proper way to drink Mead is from the Drinking Horn, not drinking out of a proper vessel halves the effective quality of your Mead.


  • Quality 10 Mead recovers 10% stamina and drains 20% energy per 0.05L sip. Higher quality Mead will decrease the energy drain but stamina recovery remains the same at all qualities.
  • This makes high quality Mead useful for performing stamina draining tasks without having to eat as much to recover, thus preserving your hunger bonus. Though energy is always shown as a whole number, it is not simply rounded up or down. For example, Q11 Mead will alternate between draining 20% and 19% energy at regular intervals. Other drinkable liquids follow the same rules and formula.
  • Energy Drain=
  • Gives energy if Q >20
  • According to that formula initial quality growth is more effective, and it always higher than 10% per 0.05 sip. Naturally stamina regenerate 10% per 10% energy.


The quality of the Mead depends solely on the quality of the mead must.

Game Development

  • Mead & Cider (2019-04-25) >"Added "Mead", for now, at least, you can only ferment honey water straight to mead, but we do have some future plans for fruit and spice meads, and such. Desatiates: Primarily Vegetables, secondarily Game and Nuts & Seeds."
