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!

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 a dropped effect ingredient: phantom membrane! These are dropped by phantoms. Leaving everything how it was from the last step, simply place the phantom membrane in the top empty space.
