    You need 1 yeast, found on orcs. I'm not sure what the different yeast do, if anything.

    You also need 4 fruit per bottle of brew you want to make.

    And, you need to use your character with an appropriate skill to have a chance of getting anything out of it. I forget whether it's alchemy, cooking or both. Every batch I tried with a character that wasn't my cook/alchemist went bad.

    You need a character with both alchemy and cooking in order to be sure of it working. You also need a resistant yeast. The best yeast to use in the barrel is one that is ++. go kill orcs til you get a ++ yeast then have a cook alch start the fermentation process.

    So is that a 4:1 ratio per bottle or 1 yeast in barrel regardless of number of bottles?

    Okay for all looking for this.

    1. Ensure your character has a decent level of both Alchmey & Cooking
    2. Open Barrel like a container
    3. Place in 1 Yeast ideally ++ however + will do
    4. Place in the fruit you require apples, grapes, peaches, pears, and plums. 4 fruit per bottle so for example i wanted 100 bottles so i placed in 400 peach. (Tip- place the fruit in the container in batch's of 100) for some reason 400 at once didnt work
    5. Enter context menu and begin Fermentation.
    6. Wait a day and hey presto 100 bottles of your chosen drink.

    it will add you a year, you just need to name it. for example Dom Perignon Peach Wine 2017

    Hope this helps as i have had issues finding this infomation
