There are two tiers of alcohol in Terrafirmacraft+. The first tier, Fermented Alcohol, is created from fermenting various food items inside a liquid container. The second tier, Distilled Alcohol, is made by distilling Fermented Alcohol in a Still.
All alcohols are liquids and therefore must be contained within a liquid container, such as a Barrel or Large Ceramic Vessel. This also means that a Barrel or Large Vessel is required to produce any type of alcohol.
While there are several processes that can create fermented alcohol in Terrafirmacraft+, the base ingredients of all these are fresh water, Yeast, and some Food that can be fermented.
In Terrafirmacraft+, yeast can be obtained by leaving non-preserved Fruit or Malted Grain in a Food Preparation surface for an in-game day. Yeast appears in-game as a property of Fruit or Grain, and is not a specific item on its own. When a food has yeast on it, its name will be prefixed with "Yeasty". This property has no effect on Decay or Taste, and can be removed by placing the food in a Firepit.
Different types of fermented alcohol require different processes to produce them. Namely, the processes for each of the types of alcohol are:
- Fruit Wines can be made by adding Yeast to Fruit Juice.
- Mead is made by adding Yeast to a mixture of honey and water.
- Grain and potato wines first need to be soaked in water to create a mixture. Then, Yeast is added to the mixture.
- Beers can be made by adding any type of yeasty cooked malted grain to water.
All fermentation in Terrafirmacraft+ takes 72 hours to complete. The GUI of the container will update to reflect the expected output of the recipe used, as well as the date the container was sealed. The following sections will elaborate on the processes that can be used for each of the alcohols in Terrafirmacraft+.
Fruit Wine can be made from the Juices of Food items in the Fruit category, as well as Agave and Sugarcane. To start the fermentation, add Yeast to a container of Juice, and seal it. As with other alcohols, fermentation takes 72 hours.

- Both Green Apples and Red Apples will produce Apple Juice.
Mead is made from Honey. There are two steps of making Mead. First, Honeywater must be created by adding a bucket (1000 mB) of Honey to a liquid container of Fresh Water. The volume of the Honey will be added to the volume of water, so there must be enough free space in the liquid container for the Honey to be added. This will immediately create the Honeywater. Next, add Yeast to the Honeywater to start the fermentation. As with other alcohols, fermentation takes 72 hours.
Grain Wine and Potato Wine
There are two steps in making Grain and Potato wines. The first step is to seal at least 145 oz. of Grain (except Oats) or cooked potato into a liquid container of Fresh Water. This will create a mixture of the food and water (e.g. Barley Water or Potato Water).
The second step is to add Yeast to the mixture of food and water, and then sealing the container in which it is contained. This will begin the fermentation and convert the mixture to Wine. As with other alcohols, fermentation takes 72 hours.

|Potato (Cooked)||Potato Wine|
Beers can be created from any type of grain (except Oat). This grain must first be malted, then cooked, and allowed to become Yeasty. Next, they are added to a liquid container of Fresh Water in order to ferment them.
The first step in creating any type of beer is to malt the grain. First, fill a Large Ceramic Vessel with Fresh Water and mount it on a Firepit by + ing. Next, add grain to the item slot of the Large Ceramic Vessel, seal it, and light the firepit. The grains in the vessel will become malted in 4 in-game hours. Grain expands 20% in volume during malting. For example, a full 160 oz of grain will produce one stack of 160 oz of malted grain plus another 32 oz stack. The minimum amount of Malted Grain needed to create a barrel of Beer is 145 oz. Therefore, at least 121 oz of grain has to be malted in order to make a barrel of Beer.
Malted Grain cannot be used for Animal Husbandry.
Roasting and Fermenting
Next, let the roasted malted grain become Yeasty by leaving it out on a Food Preparation surface for an in-game day.
Finally, add 145 oz of the yeasty roasted malted grain to a liquid container of Fresh Water, and seal it. If the ratio of grain to liquid is correct, fermentation will begin. As with other alcohols, the fermentation process will take 72 hours.

Distilled Alcohol is made from distilling Fermented Alcohol in a Still. Distilled Alcohol is a concentrated version of the corresponding Fermented Alcohol. Drinking Distilled Alcohol will grant more experience to the player, but will also intoxicate the player much more than Fermented Alcohol.
- Main article: Containers#Large Ceramic Vessel
To create a Still, Large Ceramic Vessel on top of a Firepit and place a Ceramic Blowpipe into the vessel's item slot. This vessel will boil the input liquid. Next, place another empty Large Ceramic Vessel on the ground next to the Firepit. This vessel will catch the output liquid. If everything is set up correctly, the blowpipe should appear to connect the two vessels.+ a
To distill a Fermented Alcohol into a Distilled Alcohol, fill the vessel on the firepit with Fermented Alcohol, seal it, then light the Firepit. The Fermented Alcohol will be slowly converted into Distilled Alcohol and deposited in the second vessel. Every 200 mB of Fermented Alcohol will produce 75 mB of Distilled Alcohol. The process will stop if the heated vessel is unsealed, or if the Firepit runs out of fuel.

- As of 0.85.6, Fig Brandy's recipe does not exist, even though it is intended to.
Alcohol has a variety of uses. Alcohol can be bottled in either a Ceramic Jug or a Glass Bottle. While held, alcohol of any type can be drunk by holding . Fermented Alcohols restore some Thirst, Hunger, and Nutrition. Both Fermented and Distilled Alcohol will provide Experience points when drunk. Fermented Alcohol will give 2 XP, while Distilled Alcohol will give 8 XP.
The player can become drunk if they drink too much Alcohol. While Drunk, the player may obtain random negative or positive potion effects, such as Jump Boost or Speed. Negative effects include the player randomly becoming Wounded. There are three consecutive stages to drunkenness: Drunk, Very Drunk and Wasted. When the player is Drunk, they have a small chance of failing to interact with items such as chests and barrels. If the player continues drinking, they will become Very Drunk. The player's view will become blurry, and they will not be able to use an anvil, as well as having an increased chance of failing to use an item. Continuing to drink will lead to the player being Wasted. In the Wasted stage, the player's view will gain a phosphor effect, where lines appear to stretch. The player will wobble side to side while walking. Drinking past this point will eventually lead to the player dying of alcohol poisoning. Drunkenness will slowly wear off on its own.

- The phosphor and blur effect are built-in Minecraft shaders, typically accessible via the "Super Secret Settings".
- According to the developer, oats cannot be made into alcohol because one cannot make alcohol from 100% oat.
