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.

nether wart

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 craftable effect ingredient: turtle shell! Crafting a turtle shell requires five scutes, which are dropped by baby turtles when they grow into adults. Leaving everything how it was from the last step, simply place the turtle shell in the top empty space.

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.
