The Alchemy lab is the fifth most expensive item you can purchase. It will give you 500 cookies every 5 seconds by transforming gold.

It costs 50,000 cookies to start, and will increase in price 10% with each consecutive purchase. Some grandmas will change to that of a golden grandma.

Buying your first Alchemy Lab will increase Grandma output by +4 cookies per 5 seconds.


  • You need at least 15 Alchemy Labs to purchase the "Transmuted Grandmas" upgrade.
  • The Alchemy Lab of Cookie Clicker parodies one of the most well-known goals of Alchemy, to devise a way to transform lesser metals, such as lead, into higher metals, usually gold.
  • The economic consequences of transforming the rare element of gold into cookie material has not been fully explored by the game, but it would likely cause inflation in many of the world's currencies. However, given that the player is likely to create cookies at a fast enough rate to end world hunger entirely, a post-scarcity economy may have emerged in its place, potentially limiting the need of a currencies to begin with.
  • A news tick suggests that gold is not the only precious metal that can be used in Alchemy Labs. Silver can also be  transmuted into white chocolate, according to the titles, but there are no other upgrades or achievements that support this. Additionally, the process of converting gold into cookies appears to be reversible.
  • The "Aqua crustulae" upgrade name means "Water of cookie" in latin. It's probably is a reference to latin expression "Aqua vitae" that means "Water of life".
