Kegs in Stardew Valley are one of many items that refine one good into another and can be used to significantly increase the value of some items.

Players of Stardew Valley know that there are a large amount of items that can be crafted in order to either make farm life easier or more profitable. One such item that falls into the latter category is the keg, which can turn a variety of items into artisan drinks, usually vastly increasing the sell price of the item. They are an near essential item to have in Stardew Valley.

Making Kegs

Unlocking the crafting recipe for kegs requires players to reach level 8 in farming. Once that is done, a keg can be crafted with 30 wood, 1 copper bar, 1 iron bar, and 1 unit of oak resin. The first three components should be easy to get as players will just need to chop down some logs and/or trees and go mining and then smelt the ore. Smelting a bar will require a furnace (crafted with 25 stone and 20 copper ore), 5 of one type of ore, and a piece of coal.

Once players have the wood and metal bars, the oak resin is all that remains. Players will then need to construct a tapper, that can be crafted after reaching level 3 foraging and with 40 wood and 2 copper bars. The tapper then can be placed on an oak tree to produce oak resin about every week.

Using Kegs

Kegs can be used to make seven different items which are as follows:

Beer Cofdues Green Tea Juice Meadvertisement Pale Ale Wine

Beer is produced by putting wheat inside a keg and waiting a day. Beer will sell for 200 gold. Coffee is produced by putting five coffee beans in and waiting 2 hours. One cup sells for 150 gold. Notably though, coffee can be used to increase the player"s speed to get around faster. Green tea is made by using one bunch of tea leaves and waiting 3 hours. Green tea sells for 100 gold, but can also temporarily increase max energy by 30 points for 4 minutes and 12 seconds of real time. Putting any vegetable in a keg and waiting four days will result in juice whose sell price will be 2.25 times the base sell price of the vegetable used. Processing honey with a keg will result in mead after 10 hours that sells for 200 gold. Pale ale is created between one to two days by using hops and sells for 300 gold. Finally, using any fruit with a keg will result in wine in 6.25 days that will sell for 3 times the base price of the fruit.

It"s worth mentioning however, that obtaining tea leaves can be a little more roundabout than some of the other items. Tea leaves come from tea saplings that are sold occasionally by the traveling cart in Cindersap Forest in Stardew Valley. They can also come from Caroline"s tea sapling, but to gain access to that, players will have to have 2 hearts of affection from her. Gaining access to this sapling will also result in her sending players the crafting recipe to make their own tea saplings though, which require 2 bags of wild seeds, 5 fiber, and 5 wood.

Wine, mead, beer, and pale ale are also special in that after they are produced by a keg, their quality can be increased by using Stardew Valley"s casks. Multiple casks are obtained with the final house upgrade, but more can be crafted using 20 wood, and 1 hardwood. These four drinks value will be doubled if they reach iridium quality using a cask.

Stardew Valley is available now on Mobile, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
