If you’re wondering what to put in the Fermenter to make some potions, we’ve got a guide for you. If you already know how to make a Fermenter, skip to the headline down below. If you don’t know how, you’ll need to have gotten both Fine Wood and Bronze to unlock the recipe.
|What to Put in the Fermenter|
|Fermenter Too Exposed Message|
|Every Mead Recipe in Valheim|
Once your Fermenter is all set up, you’ll need to make a mead base from a Cauldron. Then, you can place the mead base into a Fermenter to make a mead that provides resistance, extra regen, or health, for example. After putting a mead inside the Fermenter, you’ll need to wait two in-game days before it’s ready. Once it is, you’ll get six consumable meads after interacting with it. Every mead recipe is listed below alongside what it does.
The Fermenter follows similar rules to how crafting stations need enough shelter around them and a roof. If you don’t give it enough shelter, you’ll wind up with the “Fermenter Too Exposed” message. Make sure it has a floor, some walls around it, and a Thatch Roof above it. Otherwise, you won’t be able to make any mead recipes until that Fermenter Too Exposed message goes away.
