For reference, I'm doing challenges 3&4 for pride of the city

Your employees' attributes determine how often and how much quality is added during the brew. It sounds like you have a lot of Craft points, but what are your employees' critical attributes for their roles in the brew?

The game checks a particular attribute or set of attributes of each employee when brewing to determine how often quality is added. Cleaning uses the employee's Patience Attribute, Mashing and Boiling uses Intelligence and Dexterity, Fermenting uses Intelligence and Patience, and Packaging uses Dexterity.

Beyond that, the sum of an employee's total attributes determines how much quality to add each time quality is added. Which means it is important to have high stats overall, not just the ones for a particular job.

With that in mind, if you're still using employees from earlier in the game, they have limited potential because of their low base attributes and the level 10 cap. Hire employees from later in the game, even if their level 1 attributes are a slight downgrade from your early level 10 employees. They'll soon outperform the early game employees after they level a few times, and they typically have better special abilities.

  • So I need to equally focus on their core attributes while also not ignoring craft? Commented Jun 29, 2022 at 0:57
  • @BadTimingPlays Yes. Craft offers you more adaptability from brew to brew — e.g. you can use the points to improve Yield in one brew, and Quality in the next — but the core attributes contribute to Quality alone, and more so than Craft.
