How to Make Valheim Potions and Mead
Making Valheim Potions and Mead is easy once you’ve got the setup done! The only downside is that it takes time for the Potions and Mead to ferment in the Fermenter; it may be worthwhile to build multiple Fermenters.
Step 1: Gather the Ingredients
Each Potion or Mead has its own specific crafting ingredients. You can’t get started without the items to make it, after all! Some ingredients such as Blueberries, Dandelions, and Honey are easy enough to get; other ingredients, however, can be more challenging to acquire.
One of the most important ingredients for Tier 2 Potions and Mead is a Blood bag; you can get this item as a drop from Leeches, a waterborne creature that can be found in the Swamp Biome.
Step 2: Cook your Mead Base in the Cauldron
The Cauldron is where you’ll make your Mead Base — this is the precursor to actually making Potions and Mead. Like most crafting stations, the Cauldron will make things pretty much instantly.
Step 3: Ferment the Potions/Mead
Your final step is to take your Mead Base and put it in the Fermenter. It takes roughly a couple of in-game days for the process to complete. Once it’s done, you can interact with the Fermenter to pick up your finished Mead! Again, it may be a good idea to have multiple Fermenters if you plan on using Mead regularly.
