glass bottle

In order to begin brewing, use 3 glass blocks in a crafting table to make 3 glass bottles!

Take your freshly made glass bottles, go up to a water source and right click. You’ve now created a water bottle.


This is the most tedious part of brewing. In order to begin the actual brewing process, you’ll need to collect blaze powder to fuel a brewing stand. You can craft a blaze powder from blaze rods, which are dropped by (you guessed it) blazes!
