The Vat from EnderIO is a refinery style block that can produce 4 products from combining 2 items and a fluid that differs for each.

The first is Hootch, which requires an unprocessed grown food item (poison potatoes are the best producing 2 buckets) and sugar with the fluid of water to distill.

The second is Fire Water, which requires blaze powder and redstone dust along with Hootch to distill.

The third is Rocket Fuel, which requires gunpowder and redstone along with Hootch to distill.

Lastly Nutrient Distillation requires either Mob Heads, Raw Beef or Rotten Flesh; with either Sugar, Spider Eyes, Mushrooms or Nether Wart and water to distill.

Liquid in the input tank in The Vat cannot be piped out, though it can be dumped into the output tank manually. For water this allows an easy re-purposing of The Vat for either firewater or rocket fuel production; but unfortunately it seems that if the outlet piping backs up Hootch can be transferred to the input liquid side and must be dumped in order to continue Hootch production. Thus making automation more complex in order to ensure production of Hootch runs 'on demand' only.

A note about The Vat's consumption of liquids: The output of The Vat will be 1/4th of the input for water and the output will be the entirety of the input for Hootch.

Example 1: 8 buckets of water is put in, 2 buckets of Hootch will be put out.

Example 2: 1 bucket of Hootch is put in, 1 bucket of Rocket Fuel will be put out.

NOTE: Testing was done with second ingredient having a multiplier of "1x"
