Some works have abilities like 25% chance of 25% faster brew time. Does it matter if I place this worker first in the task order (i.e. cleaning), or last (bottling)? Will it reduce the overall brew time or is it just for their task that they have a chance in reducing?

No, the craft bonuses are applied regardless of where you place them in the production line. The important statistic that you should base your consideration on are as follows;

This means that you should assign your workers to the roles they're best suited to based on the statistics bonuses for each role below;

  • Cleaning - Patience

  • Cooking - Intelligence and Dexterity

  • Fermenting - Intelligence and Patience

  • Packaging - Dexterity

Choosing a worker with statistics that match the role requirements will improve the quality of your brew in addition to the craft bonuses.

  • just to clarify, so if my packager has the increase brew speed by 25%, then it'll affect the entire brewing time, not just the bottling part?

  • "brew" in this game refers to the entire process

  • I know, but usually you don't see them apply their 'bonus' until its their turn to do something

  • Still testing... the speed bonus seems to drop off once that worker becomes inactive, although putting a worker in the role of cooking instead of cleaning does seem to reduce the duration of the brew slightly (I think this is because cooking is a slightly longer process than cleaning or packing though since cleaning comes before cooking during a brew)

    I think you were right the first time, I put a double brewing speed guy at the packaging and the entire process went super fast.
