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

water bottle

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

blazes

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!

blaze powder recipe

Simply put the blaze rod anywhere on the crafting table to create 2 blaze powders.

Basic potions require a potion modifier. In this case, we need to gather nether wart. So while you’re looking for blazes, be sure to also grab some soul sand and nether wart from the nether fortress!

The base potion for every standard potion is an awkward potion. Place 3 water bottles, blaze powder, and nether wart into the brewing stand’s GUI as shown above.

This potion requires an easy to gather effect ingredient: ghast tear! These are obviously dropped by ghasts. Leaving everything how it was from the last step, simply place the ghast tear in the top empty space.

After brewing is complete, you’ve created a standard potion of regeneration. This potion restores health by 1 half-heart every 2.5 seconds for 45 seconds.

Enhancing a potion improves the effect that it has on the player or entity. Add a glowstone dust into the base ingredient slot (the top one) to begin brewing.

The output potion restores health by 1 half-heart every 1.2 seconds.

redstone potion

You can also extend a potion of regeneration by placing a redstone dust in the base ingredient slot. Extending a potion means that the effect will last longer.

The potion will now last for 1.5 minutes!

Some maps require a specific Minecraft version to run. Luckily, changing this is easy!

Minecraft will automatically set itself to the current version for ease of use, but sometimes you need to revert, especially if your favorite map was created with an earlier version.
