Mulsum is my baby
# Sep 10 2006 at 7:37 PM Rating: Decent
Just recently started making mulsum. This is the first cooking recipe that I've ever made a profit on, and I've made about 120k profit so far this day. I'm likin' it, I'm no longer poor~

Grape Juice = 6k -- Synthed my own, about 6k per stack with Hades crystal prices.
Honey = 4-5k at Hades prices.
Water = 144g from merchants
Ice Crystals = 5k from AH

SO -- Total cost is ~16k. The going price in Jeuno is 30k, so I make almost 50% profit. Not too shabby, eh? Also, on a good day I can make about six stacks in two hours (muling ingredients is a B,) so that's 90k an hour. Pretty decent profit, better than silks or beehive chips on Hades.

Well I'm lvling my cooking on my mule and its up to lv 52 after 1 week and mulsum is what I'm doing to 56. Profit wise, leviathan AH in jueno is holding at 19-20k per stack.

Water 12 x 12
Honey = 3.5k in windy
Grapes = 33 x 48 in sandy, dark crystals easy farm item in the glacier region
Ice crystals = easy staff skill up on elementals

Other then the fact that I'm farming my crystals and getting staff skill ups, STILLL, im looking at cost being, with tax about 7-7.5k tops, and profit of 12k at least. Not too bad for this lvl of cooking if I do say so myself.

on midgard this is a pure profit/ break even synth for 52ish and skilling up:

12 juice @ 930g per = 11,160g
12 water @ 10g per = 120g
12 honey @ 416g per = 5000g
12 crystal @166g per= 2000g
Total: 18,280G cost
AH: 20,000 steady.

at 52 cooking with out synth support i am rarely failing synth and getting a skillup every 5 or 6 synths. putting these back on the AH it's about break even, counting breaks here and there. I just bought up about 7 or 8 stacks of each ingredient and am sitting in front of yoskolo in jeuno right now buying juice for the synth.

another thing that i like about this recipe is 12+ synths only takes up 1 AH slot, as the yield is 1 mulsum per synth.

How quickly does this item sell at the ah? Also, does it sell more quickly in Jeuno than the other cities, or are they about the saem?

I know this is a response to a post made a long time ago but I made some of this because I had farmed the crystals and had a lot of honey. I did get some skillups but I could not sell it for love nor money. Luckily I made less than two stacks ~ kept a few odd ones and npc'd the rest. If you know an alchemist who could use this ~ you might do better to sell direct to them.

REAL mulsum

As to the mention of the REAL recipe for mulsum(not the FF in-game synth recipe), it's actually pretty simple.

Warm 1/2 cup clear honey and add it to a bottle of medium-dry white wine. Chill before serving.

My brothers and I do some home brewing. I don't drink beer, so I brew mead(honey wine). I found out about the mulsum recipe from the beekeeper I get my honey from, though I've yet to try it. ;)

Who buys mulsum and why? 10mp how is that usefull past level 10? Someone mentioned HLs spam this for mp, but at 10k a stack wouldn't an ether, or even a high-ether be more efficient and effective? <Hmmm>

BTW- On Alexander, Honey is now at about 3-5K a stack!!!!! @_@ I assume it has to do with the abundance of mid-level cooks making pies...
Yay For math!

Lets do math shall we?
12 mulsums = 120 mp :D which is a stack
1 ether is 20 MP For about 4400 - 5000 idk
Hi-Ether is 50 mp.

Hm...Hi ether takes 5 or so seconds to use so...?
Ethers can be used just like mulsums but they don't stack.

Mulsums heal 10 mp x 12 = 120 for ONE slot. takes some time to repeativly use it but it beats ether and Hi-Ether in the space use. Also its nice to use if your a summoner >.> Cheaper

:D that is why people buy Mulsums! More mp for the slot space

/laugh all
On Asura....
Grapes: 76g each = 3.8k to make 12 grape juices
Dark Cluster = 4k
Honey = 2.2k
distilled water x12= 120g (for me anyways)
Ice Crystals = 1.5k per stack
Yield: 12 Mulsum
Stack of Mulsum in jeuno: 17k - 505 g from putting them at AH
So costs 12.125g (including tax to put at AH) which is 4.875g profit per stack.

Honey, actually, is thus:

1x Wind Crystal
4x Beehive Chips


2x Pots of Honey.

You're taking apart the honey comb, basically.

Why Expensive?

Can someone please explain to me why these go for 13K+ per stack at the AH in Windy? (Fenrir Server) I cannot understand it.

This Item stacks ethers and such does not. May be a reason why they are worth more to some ppl.
RE: Why Expensive?
# Apr 21 2004 at 3:49 PM Rating: Good
I use the things myself. They pretty expensive but damn usefull. There have been times when 10 mp has thrown the tide of an otherwise losing battle.

If you have ever used an Ether or Hi-Ether you would instantly know the reason. It takes almost 10 seconds for one of them to take effect. The battles I have been in are long decided before then. Mulsum's are as fast as a Potion.

Well for one it is expensive to make. Grape juice itself costs a bit to make. Add up the price of the ingredients, you'll spend at least like 8k making a stack of it. Thats if you don't break any.

You can really load your mp back up by spamming off a few stacks of this, its really nice when you need mp. It works instantly and high levels use it(and high levels have gil to spend.)
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 29 2004 at 3:50 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) grapejuice and honey tastes naaaasty ppl, and I doubt distilled water would improve it any.

Actually, IRL mulsum would be made with wine, not grape juice. It would be served very cold, and is quite refreshing. It was a popular drink with the Romans, and was prescribed as a medicine to restore depleted mental energies. Dr. Dee (Queen Elizabeth's favorite magician and alchemist) mentions it in the chapter on 'the prolongation of life.' It is described as 'the Dew of Heaven', 'whereby he became renued in spirit, body and excellency' upon consuming the golden liquor known as Mulsum.

Well, take a quick look at the recipe for the grape "juice". You're taking grapes and using a crystal that creates the effect "spoil" when you synth. And spoiled grapes are. . . (pause for suspense) WINE!!! Why not just call it wine you ask? Did SE call the new female only fabric subligar panties? No. Would they dare call the new bathing suits bikinis? No. Are the even adventerous enough to, *gasp* have guys in game walking around without shirts? No. Don't get me wrong, good post, you just have t learn to speak Enix-ese =P
RE: irl mulsum
# Jun 21 2004 at 9:54 PM Rating: Decent
The recipe for grape juice uses a Dark crystal (decay/fermentation), So it really is wine instead of real grape juice.

if this was made with wine in game, wouldn't it have the added stats agi -2 dex -2 acc -5 evasion -5 fun +10 for every mulsum you drink?

4 beehive=4 honey but it's be really weird to turn a 3.5k stack of beehive chips into a 800 stack of honey =p.

Are mulsum popular? It's sort of a mini ether, right?

I assume its honey and a water crystal, since wind is used for carving (try carving honey..... not too easy)

Anyone know if there is a Alc Recipe for this item? IF so...what is it? I'm assuming its made with Honey and a Wind crystal...anyone confirm?
