Item #: SCP-647-JP

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-647-JP is contained within a standard waterproof container equipped with specialized drainage system (S3D2-C), which is located in the BSL3 Quarantine Zone at Site-8163. Once collected, SCP-647-JP-B is to be temporarily stored in a large inox tank and then disposed of in accordance with the C-class Organic Liquid Waste Disposal Protocol.

Description: SCP-647-JP is a wooden Western-style barrel with a height of 900 mm, a center diameter of 790 mm, and a capacity of 228 liters. Genetic analysis has revealed that, unlike most wine barrels, it is composed of wood derived from pomegranate (Punica granatum). SCP-647-JP is indestructible by any means, and has a high thermostatic property that maintains an internal temperature of 38.0 °C.

SCP-647-JP generates SCP-647-JP-A and SCP-647-JP-B through a Brewing Event. Although direct observation of Brewing Event is not possible since it takes place inside SCP-647-JP, it can be indirectly investigated by nondestructive examination, such as ultrasound and MRI.

SCP-647-JP-A is an entity resembling a human fetus that occurs inside SCP-647-JP. In its early stages, SCP-647-JP-A is in the embryonic state; while it temporarily develops visceral tissues and other organs constituting a human being during its growth, it does not have an internal skeleton or equivalent structure and is believed to maintain its shape only by its cell membranes and skin.



SCP-647-JP-A matures after a growth period of approximately 280 days and then is converted to SCP-647-JP-B. SCP-647-JP-B is a brewed beverage with an alcohol content of 18% produced by the disintegration of SCP-647-JP-A. It is slightly turbid red in color, emits an aromatic scent, and is rich in pomegranate-derived components1, as well as protein and fat of human origin. Although SCP-647-JP-B does not possess any noteworthy physical properties, it induces a feeling of intoxication in individuals upon swallowing it, along with auditory hallucinations similar to the cries of a newborn baby. The auditory hallucination lasts for twenty to ninety seconds, which has been observed to be roughly the same duration as the time the subject perceives the aftertaste of SCP-647-JP-B.

Twenty-four hours after the disintegration of SCP-647-JP-A, a small crack forms in the lid of SCP-647-JP, which causes SCP-647-JP-B to flow outward. The Brewing Event is completed with the outflow of SCP-647-JP-B and is repeated spontaneously after the self-repair of the crack, which takes seventy-two hours.

Addendum 1: SCP-647-JP was discovered on ████/10/14 at a brewery in [REDACTED], Fushimi-ku, Kyoto, Japan. On 10/7, the Kyoto Prefectural Police investigated into the whereabouts of a brewer named Fujiwara ████████ after receiving a report of his disappearance, which revealed that he had called himself "Akitsu"2 to his employee, Sakurai █████. Due to the suspected connection between Fujiwara and the "Sekiryu Club," the Foundation conducted a further investigation, which resulted in the discovery of the anomaly. Despite the subsequent extensive search, Fujiwara has not been located from since.

An interview with Sakurai █████ conducted by Agent Rin resulted in the following testimony.

Testing confirmed genetic similarities between SCP-647-JP-B and Sakurai. Although close examination revealed that Sakurai's body now lacks ovaries, no other substantial or biological abnormalities were observed, for which she was administered Class-B amnestics and released into the general public.

Addendum 2: Twelve bottles of SCP-647-JP-B3 were discovered in Fujiwara's residence. Each bottle had a label printed 'Carol di prosperità' and was assigned a number from No. 109 to No. 120. Based on the capacity of SCP-647-JP and the estimated number of Brewing Events that occurred prior to its containment, it is believed that at least ███ instances of SCP-647-JP-B bottle are still extant, none of which have yet been located.
