How to make mead using cauldrons in Valheim

Another round of mead!

When you reach a certain point in Valheim, raspberries and the occasional cooked meat aren't going to cut it anymore as a means to heal either stamina or health. When you reach this point, you will need to turn to more sophisticated means of healing like mead. But you will need to get the required resources to unlock first, as mead is locked off until you get a cauldron up and running. 

How to brew mead using cauldrons in Valheim

To make mead using a cauldron in Valheim, you will need to first craft a campfire via the miscellaneous tab in the build menu with five stone and two wood. After this, you can then place a cauldron on top of the campfire using a hammer, and to make the cauldron, you will first need to unlock it by getting tin and turning it into tin bars. 

You will also need a total of ten tin bars to craft the cauldron, and once it is made, you will be able to make mead base inside it, provided you have the required resources. Once you gather the necessary resources for a mead base, you can then make it inside the cauldron; however, you will need to craft a fermenter to turn it into an actual drinkable substance. 

Once a fermenter is made, you can then put all of your mead bases inside it to turn it into mead; it will take one hour of realtime to complete this process, which is about two days of in-game time. After this, that's everything on how to make mead using a cauldron, so here's all mead you can make in the game and what resources they require below.
