Obtaining

Barrels are crafted with 7 lumber of the same wood type. Barrels can be crafted from every different type of wood, but this has no effect on the barrel other than aesthetically.

Usage

Barrels are filled with liquids by either placing a full bucket inside the barrel, by right-clicking on the barrel with full bucket in hand, or by right-clicking on another filled barrel/large ceramic vessel or liquid source block with the empty barrel in hand.

Once sealed, a barrel can be broken down and moved. It will retain its contents, allowing the player to fill it in one location before moving it to another. If the barrel is not sealed when it is broken, it will dump its items onto the ground, and the liquid inside will be deleted. Sealed barrels must be carried one at a time in the characters back slot (located to the right of the chest armor slot). If the player has a sealed barrel in their inventory that is not located in the back slot, the player will see a message stating, "Overburdened" and will not be able to move.

Note: All of the below recipes are the suggested minimum ratios. Any multiple of these ratios that will fit in the barrel will work. Liquid is the limiting factor for the majority sealed barrel recipes, meaning that a barrel can process the recipe if it has too much liquid, but it cannot process if it has too much of an item.

Fresh Water

Fresh Water barrels are used as a starting point for tannin and alcohols, as storage for drinking water, to quickly cool down heated items, to create jute fibers, to process sugar cane, and to turn scraped hides into prepared hides. An unsealed barrel can be placed outside with direct access to the sky, and will accumulate fresh water when it is raining. A full fresh water barrel will fill 10 Ceramic Jugs; or can process 50 jute, 166.66 oz of sugar cane, 33 small scraped hides, 25 medium scraped hides, or 20 large scraped hides.

Alcohol

Alcohol is created by adding a large enough piece of food to a fresh water barrel, and then sealing the barrel for 72 hours. The food weight is the limiting factor in this recipe, meaning that for every 1,000 mB of fresh water in the barrel, there must be at least 4 ounces of food in the input slot. Adding an excess of food will simply consume the entire food in making the alcohol, although it is planned that in a future version this excess will increase the potency of the alcohol.

Vinegar

Vinegar is created by adding a large enough piece of fruit to an alcohol barrel, and then sealing the barrel for 8 hours. Fruit is the limiting factor in this recipe, meaning that for every 1,000 mB of alcohol in the barrel, there must be at least 10 ounces of fruit in the input slot. Adding an excess of fruit will simply consume the entire fruit in making the vinegar.

Brine

Brine is created by adding a single bucket of vinegar to a barrel containing at least 1,000 mB of salt water. The recipe is instant, and does not require the barrel to be sealed.

Usage

Brine can be used with any type of food except for those in the grain category. To brine a piece of food, first make sure that there is enough liquid in the barrel to brine the weight of the food. If there is not, either add more brine to the barrel, or cut the food into smaller pieces.

Pickling

Vinegar can be used to pickle any piece of brined food. To pickle a piece of food, first make sure that there is enough liquid in the barrel to pickle the weight of the food. If there is not, either add more vinegar to the barrel, or cut the food into smaller pieces. While it requires 1,000 mB of vinegar for every 16 ounces of brined food in order to start the process, only 1 mB of the vinegar will be consumed for each ounce of the item sealed in the barrel.

Once a piece of food has been pickled, it can be stored in a sealed vinegar barrel indefinitely to drastically reduce the rate at which it decays. Preserving pickled food in vinegar requires a minimum of 1,000 mB of vinegar for every 32 ounces of pickled food.

Lime Water

Lime water is created by placing flux in a fresh water barrel, using a ratio of 2 flux for each bucket (1,000 mB). Lime water creation is instant, and will consume the flux the moment the ratio is valid. Lime water barrels are used to create mortar and turn raw hides into soaked hides. A full lime water barrel can process 1,600 mortar, 33 small raw hides, 25 medium raw hides, or 20 large raw hides.

Tannin

Tannin is created by placing a single Oak, Birch, Chestnut, Douglas Fir, Hickory, Maple, or Sequoia log in a fresh water barrel and sealing it for 8 hours. A single log is enough to turn any barrel with at least 1 bucket (1,000 mB) of fresh water into tannin. Adding additional logs will result in either the recipe being unable to process (shown by no message at the bottom when sealed), or the excess logs will simply be consumed. Tannin is used to tan prepared hides into leather. A full barrel of tannin can process 33 small prepared hides, 25 medium prepared hides, or 20 large prepared hides, producing 33 leather for small, 50 leather for medium, and 60 leather for large.

Curdled Milk/Cheese

Curdled milk is created by adding a single bucket of vinegar to a barrel containing at least 1,000 mB of milk, and sealing it for 8 hours. This will result in an amount of curdled milk equal to the original volume + 111 * (original volume / 1000).

For example: Adding vinegar to 1,000 mB of milk will result in 1,111 mB of curdled milk. Adding vinegar to 5,000 mB of milk will result in 5,555 mB of curdled milk. The exception to this calculation is adding vinegar to 9,000 mB of milk, which will result in a full barrel, instead of 9,999 mB.

After the milk has curdled, remove the empty bucket and seal the barrel for an additional 8 hours. The weight of the resulting cheese is dependent on the amount of curdled milk in the barrel, calculated with the formula (Volume mB) * 1 oz / 62.5 mB = Weight oz.

For example: Using the three above examples of curdled milk, would result in 17.77 oz, 88.88 oz, and 160 oz of cheese respectively.

Powder Keg

Powder kegs are created by placing four stacks of 64 gunpowder in the solid storage of a single barrel. Powder kegs are lit with a redstone signal and create an explosion with a blast radius of 64 blocks. However, due to the high resistance of TFC blocks, the majority of the damage will be dealt within an approx. 10 block radius.

Trivia

  • Dunk originally wished for powder kegs to be lit with a gunpowder trail rather than a redstone signal. However, due to their common use in SMP traps, this feature would have been impractical.
  • When consuming alcohol, the player will eventually experience side-effects including slurred speech in chat, and random potion effects. If the player drinks too much alcohol in a short period of time, they will die.
