Brown spice (3) detail

Brown spice is one of the four spices dropped by Hell-Rats in Evil Dave's basement. If brown spice is used in a stew, it becomes a Spicy stew, which, when consumed, can temporarily raise or lower a player's Woodcutting, Herblore, Farming, Fishing and Mining levels. The amount it can raise these stats depends on the number of doses used in the stew (between 1 and 3). Each dose of spice can cause the boost to either increase or decrease a stat by -1 to +1, up to a maximum of -5 or +5 with three doses.

Once all 4 doses are used, it becomes an empty spice shaker that cannot be used for anything.

Players may decant any smaller doses of spice together into bottles of larger doses.

An admiral pie is a better choice when it comes to boosting fishing, as the +5 bonus is guaranteed.

It is suggested that you use a Wily cat to catch the Hell-Rats as they offer a better chance of killing the rats than any other cat.
