Sometimes you’re a server admin looking for a way to punish players…or you just want to slow down incoming zombies! Either way, a potion of slowness can be a handy tool. A potion of slowness can slow the player to 40% or 85%, giving the status effect of slowness.

1 – Craft a Glass Bottle

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

2 – Create a Water Bottle

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

3 – Get Fuel for Brewing

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.

4 – Gather the Potion Modifier

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!

5 – Brew an Awkward Potion

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.

6 – Brew a Potion of Swiftness or Leaping

A potion of swiftness requires sugar, while a potion of leaping requires a rabbit’s foot. You can learn how to make either step-by-step in the below linked guides:

  • Potion of Swiftness
  • Potion of Leaping

After brewing is complete, you’ve created a standard potion of swiftness or leaping. Now you can move on to creating a potion of slowness.

7 – Brew a Potion of Slowness

Add a fermented spider eye to the base ingredient slot in a brewing stand and let the brewing process through.

You’ve now brewed a standard potion of slowness! This potion slows the player to 85% speed for 1.5 minutes.

8 – Enhance With Glowstone Dust

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 decreases the player to 40% speed for 20 seconds.

9 – Extend With Redstone Dust

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

The potion decreases the player to 85% speed and lasts for 4 minutes.
