I cannot figure out how to use the alchemy bench. I have been trying to brew Spirits.
I am encountering three main problems.
- It states that the recipe includes "spirits" (this is a base alchemy ingredient that just happens to have the same name as this potion). But at no point in the recipe is it used.
- I need to add the ground (grindings takes a turn or 2) sage and mint 1 turn after the st johns, but the bench does not seem to want to allow me to pick up the sage and mint until after the st johns.
- Can you grind both at the same time, or does putting a second herb in the mortar erase the last one?
- Boiling seems really hard to time correctly, you cannot both work the bellows and use the timer, and 1 turn is really short compared to the nature lag that comes with using the bench and waiting for animations to finish.
- Clicking the still does nothing. I have no idea how to distill a mixture.
