This ritual creates one serving of space mead per caster level. Space mead is normally very unstable, and evaporates uselessly after only 1 hour per caster level, starting from the time the ritual is completed. If consumed before that time is up, the drinker becomes immune to the effects of exposure to the vacuum of space and need not eat, sleep, or breathe for 3 days per caster level.
