Is there a limit on how many potions you can brew at the same time?
One would assume that there are steps where you can have a bigger cauldron or you have to wait for things to boil and settle etc, and could spend that time on other potions at the same time.

If this is so, the over head cost goes down significantly.

Wherein it doth sayeth: "Up to 10 doses of any potion may be made in a single “batch,” if
enough ingredients are available."

But kicking this can down the road, if you have one pot boiling away for one "batch" of 10 doses, why wouldn't there be another pot boiling up a different "batch" of up to 10 of something else? I can see requiring a sous-chef though if too many pots get cooking at once.

Perhaps easier to explain why only one magic item can be worked on at a time: multiple enchantment spells running at once in the same lab probably would interfere with each other.

Maybe one dose per pot is all that's safe, and ten pots is as much as an alchemist can keep track of.

But yes, TFT alchemy does feel less industrial than TFT magic.

No problem with multiple batches, if you've got enough labs and alchemists for them.
