Saradomin brew flask detail.png

A Saradomin brew flask is a potion flask containing six doses of Saradomin brew. It is created by using Saradomin brew on a potion flask.

Saradomin brew heals 1,000 life points per sip, up to 1,000 life points above normal; however, this boost is temporary. This is unaffected by Constitution and is the same regardless of level. It increases your Defence by 4% + 1 while temporarily draining your Strength, Attack, Magic, and Ranged by 4% + 1.

The flask is made by blowing robust glass, requiring 89 Crafting and giving 100 experience. Red sandstone can be mined at Oo'glog or Sophanem and smelted using the robust glass machine located at Oo'glog or Prifddinas.

To decant the potion into the flask, one must have at least 6 doses of Saradomin brew in their inventory, as well as one or more potion flasks. Using the flask on the potion will open a menu to decant them. The optimal inventory setup for decanting potions is 17 4-dose potions and 11 flasks.

Only the original, six-dose potion is tradeable. Once the potion has been partially drunk, no more doses can be added to it. After all six doses have been consumed, the flask will shatter and disappear. Flasks can be combined together, but the empty flasks will still be destroyed afterwards.

This is an efficient healing method, in terms of inventory space, as it heals 6,000 life points in one slot, albeit taking a few seconds to consume.

If the full, 6-dosed version of this potion is consumed, each dose would cost about 3,731 coins.

Use[edit | edit source]

It is universally advised to only use this in combination with restore, super restore, or overload potions in order to counteract the draining of the player's Attack, Strength, Magic and Ranged stats. Without using restore potions the Saradomin brew will reduce a player's levels to under level 10 within 5-8 doses, depending on the player's stats. As this effectively defeats the point of using it by quickly rendering players nearly incapable of doing damage, it is generally avoided.

In certain situations where the extra healing from a Saradomin brew is not fully required the player can opt to use a Guthix rest potion instead to avoid the stat draining effect of Saradomin brews.

The brew has the fourth highest amount of healing per inventory slot, behind Super Saradomin brews, Primal feasts, and a stack of Purple sweets and not including a Calorie bomb (rocktail). While becoming largely useless immediately after the introduction of the Evolution of Combat due to their minuscule healing per dose, they became a staple of high level PvM upon their subsequent buff. They are almost always used at bosses such as Nex: Angel of Death, Beastmaster Durzag, and Yakamaru. As they do not provide large amounts of burst healing, they are generally used as a supplementary heal. Combined with a Sailfish to "tick eat" (or "sailfish brew"), a player can heal 3,400 LP in a single tick by consuming both items in quick succession. Alternatively, by tick eating (or "jelly brewing") a Blue blubber jellyfish, you can restore 1,350 LP in a single tick without losing Adrenaline. Because of their decently expensive price, it is not suggested to use brews during low level PvM activities or most slayer tasks. Brews can also not be used while under the influence of a Berserk blood essence as they will diminish the stat boosting effects.

  • A maximum stack of sweets technically offers the most LP of any food item per one inventory slot at 429,496,729,400 LP (just over 400 billion), however the cost and time to eat a sufficient amount of sweets generally does not make these a good source of healing
  • Restores 20% energy per sweet
