Ancient Fruit makes wine proof screenshot, imgur link because not certain about wiki image policies --Party Magician (talk) 06:22, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
I just tested the Hot Pepper, it makes Wine not Juice.
Just made Beet, Corn, Radish, Red Cabbage, and Rhubarb in my kegs.
All came out as juice.
Nevermind above. I harvested the wrong kegs.
Beet, Corn, Radish, and Red Cabbage made juice a few days later.
Rhubarb made wine. I walked to Pierre's and he offered me 990g for it (I have the 2x artisan goods skill), so it's worth 495g. I looked at the table and, lo, that's a 2.25x markup. So while Rhubarb is a wine, it's the only known wine that carries the juice markup. The Hot Pepper Wine above may be another case like this, but I don't have any Hot Peppers on hand to test it.
I've updated Rhubarb to wine in the table, but left the juice prices and calculations. I also added a new footnote explaining it.
Answer from roy
LOL it is normal. Rhubarb in game is Fruit haha
Productivity Analysis Misleading?
I'm currently deciding what crops to plant in the fall season with a small number of kegs. The argument and table on keg productivity make sense but doing my own analysis seems to contradict it:
Using 42,000 minutes of keg-time (roughly a season of time), you can produce 7 pumpkin juice or 18.67 beer. This generates a value of 5040g and 3733g respectively (4340g and 3547g after seed cost). Pumpkins and wheat use roughly the same amount of soil to fill a keg. Essentially, growing pumpkins to fill kegs is more profitable than growing wheat to fill kegs. When I'm growing the crops, why not replace the wheat that is filling the kegs with pumpkins and make more profit? Keep in mind that I'm doing this in the early game, when I don't have unlimited sprinklers and very few kegs.
I would argue that the amount of profit generated by growing the crop is also a valuable part of choosing what crop to grow (to put in the keg). There's a certain limit to how many plots I am willing to water/have sprinklers for, so I can either grow one crop or the other. Since pumpkins are overall more valuable, its better for me to grow some pumpkins than some wheat and fill the rest with cranberries. Should the analysis be revised? --Omeglisk (talk) 19:59, 22 May 2016
Reply: I agree that for a player who has planned both their keg availability and crops well in advance, just the value added by the keg isn't the best way to make a plan. But for those advanced players, 95% of this page is useless, since hops win by almost every conceivable metric after the 1.1 fruit nerfs.
This page best serves the beginning player who has their first few kegs and wants to answer the question "of the crops that I have on hand, which of them should I put in the keg next to get the most out of my new kegs?" Gchristopher (talk) 23:30, 31 October 2016
Updated the Rhubarb on the bottom table to say wine..
I also updated the pricing for Rhubarb. Choosing Artisan Goods skill gives 1.5x, not 2x. The base price of Rhubarb wine is 660g, giving 990 per wine with the Artisan skill --Cricket (talk) 19:48, 15 August 2016
