George Melons, the Assistant says:
"Hey, kid. Wanna buy some Space Drugs? You askin' how I made it? Well, I threw a bunch of random trash an'a dead mouse in a blender and heated it up with a lighter, of course! Easy as that."

Starting out

So, you are an average Greytide and you want to be a Walter White. How do you do it? First off, you're gonna wanna get these things to get started with ghetto chem.

  • Beaker.png A few beakers, soda cans, bottles, etc
  • Table.png A couple of tables to store your beakers, so you don't spill your shit on the floor

Most importantly, without this you dont have ghetto chem:

  • Blender.png An all in one grinder, to grind some things into liquid form. Optionally make a mortar Mortar1.png and pestle Pestle.png.


  • Chemmaster.gif A ChemMaster 3000 to separate and bottle chemicals.

tl;dr go to the holodeck and boot up the medical program! Remember that you can use matches, lighters, and igniters to heat containers as well.


Not only can you steal things, but you can also shove them into a grinder to retrieve chemicals from them!

If you're stealing from Botany, check out the Guide to hydroponics.
