Chateau du Tei'kaliath (winery/brewery/distillery)

Postby Kir'ima on Sun Jun 19, 2011 3:10 am

"Craft distillery, fermenting jars/bottles: start making beer-wine-spirits"

As proposed and discussed in the PtP chat, I plan to start the TK2 alcohol project next turn.
This project aims to make wine from berries, high proof distilled spirits from roots and tubers, and beer from grains, seeds, mushrooms, etc..
The fermenting jars and bottles will be made from clay, and the still from clay and a small amount of metal.

Alcohol is a tradable, medical, cooking, diplomatic and potential military* resource.
If nothing else, it will help keep us warm and merry in our dugouts and cabins during the cold winter.


*: get the enemy drunk and then have our way with them. death by booga booga! wait- what?

Mmmmmmmm... this is reminding me of the beer fields I saw in Germany. Good memories!

We'll need barley (which I think is one of the easy options) and hops. They're a kind of vine, and you need the flowers. Yeast can be obtained from the wilds or from the bakery when we get one.

Mmmm... TK beer... I likey!

Go make some catnip wine for the kitty ferals so we can have something worth trading with them.
A survivalist should not be a pessimist, he should always be positive, happy and enjoying life more than anyone else because he understands that each minute of peace we have is precious and unique, and he never takes it for granted.

I have intended to do that as well, but first we need to set up the basic brewing/distilling/fermenting process, and then we need to find catnip.
Piece by piece, step by step, we draw closer to producing firewater for the natives...

High proof distilled spirits combined with a simple plunger-type squirt gun structure and the crafters' fire mana would also enable simple flame throwers, which might be an effective deterrent against the gryphon and other wild creatures. Of course we would first need to check the dryness/dampness of the forest to make sure we wouldn't start an uncontrollable fire and burn everything down...

A confirmation/clarification of the EA panel text:
"A few bottles still remain, their flavour adjusted, ready for storage."
Around half to three fifths of the wine was lost. Of the remaining bottles, the flavor has been adjusted so that the wine is no longer too harsh, foul tasting, slimy, etc. However, even with adjustments most newly bottled wine is too bitter, so in order to become good wine, that is to say a tradable commodity, it needs to be stored to age for a bit.

"More/better wine, more high proof, expand wine cellar, build trading stock"


- Continue making and improving the squeezeberry wine.
Experiment with flavors (other berries, honey, nuts, herbs, etc.) to find the best recipes.
The best 20% is kept safely for An'jhali and important guests/occasions.
40% is for clan use (festivals, etc.), and 40% is stored as trading stock.

- Continue distilling high proof alcohol.
1/3 to the healers as disinfectant, 1/3 to make molotov cocktails, 1/3 as trading stock

- Expand and improve the wine cellar.
Located below winery, stone lining with mana and key locks = Safe and secure!

Trading stock = 40% of wine, 1/3 of high proof alcohol (disinfectant)

* The clan needs metal, so if any Nal travel back and forth between the colony and Chel during this multi-year turn, ask to send some of the trading stock in exchange for iron bars.

Don't forget honey, useful for the sugar base for improving fermentation...as well as making mead and honey wine, which we still have a couple of gallons of...Tim's Thunder Tipper. 40-50% strong mead, made for the strongest and not those of weak constitution.

Honey is listed ^^
Experiment with flavors (other berries, honey, nuts, herbs, etc.) to find the best recipes.

Beer/mead will follow later.
I am limiting it to wine and high proof alcohol for now because those are the most useful (highest value) and to keep things simple.
