Detailed walkthrough[]

Biv wants the player character to craft a new drink for his daily quality test. The player character will automatically learn to craft one of the following beverages:

Use a brewing station to craft the newly learned recipe, gathering any needed components as necessary. After crafting, wait for the alcohol to ferment. Optionally, finish it using a fermenter at a C.A.M.P. to decrease the waiting time. Once complete, give the beverage to Biv for his report.

It is not necessary to brew the alcohol requested if the player character already has it in their inventory. The existing alcohol can be given directly to Biv.

  • As the beverage recipes are automatically learned from Biv, they cannot be sold, dropped, or traded.
  • The beverages learned are unique in that they have no physical recipes, meaning that they cannot be directly referenced in the game files. They instead share a placeholder recipe that dynamically changes before being automatically learned.
  • This daily quest alternates with Tipsy Taste-Test. Each day Biv is visited, there is a 50% chance of being given either quest, as long as all the recipes listed above have not been learned. However, if Biv has given two Tipsy Taste-Test quests in a row, then Wasted On is guaranteed. Once all the Wasted On recipes are learned, this daily will no longer activate.
