Brewing Recipes in Minecraft

Brewing Stand screengrab


In Minecraft, brewing is the process of creating potions using a brewing stand. To make a potion, the player must first add a base potion to the brewing stand, then add one or more ingredients to the potion to change its properties. Some components can be found worldwide, while others must be crafted. Once the ingredients are added, the potion must be left to brew for a certain amount of time before it is finished.


There are over fifty brewing recipes for potions in Minecraft. In this article, we will be touching on some of the essential ones, and with time, we will be adding more and more to the list.


Types of Potions in Minecraft


At present, there are two categories into which Portions have been classified in Minecraft:


Splash Potions

In order to activate the effects of the splash potion, you need to throw it on a hard surface. Splash Potions are used to have poisonous or any other health-depreciating effect on the mobs. Splash Potions can be used to give players effects such as increased speed, strength, and health regeneration, as well as adverse effects such as blindness and poison.


Lingering Potions

Lingering Potions can be thrown to create potion cloud which persists for a certain amount of time or dripped on the tips of arrows for effects. These clouds can affect players and mobs that come into contact with them, similar to splash potions.


Players combine a splash potion with a Dragon's breath in a brewing stand to make a lingering potion.


Lingering potions can also be used to make tipped arrows that can be fired from a crossbow, which will apply the effect upon impact. The effect duration of the potion cloud is longer than the splash potion effect.


These potions are helpful in multiplayer games, where they can create traps or defend an area.


Essential Brewing Recipes in Minecraft


Here are the basic steps to brewing a potion in Minecraft:


  1. Obtain a brewing stand by crafting it using a blaze rod and three cobblestone blocks.

  2. Add water bottles to the bottom three slots of the brewing stand to create the base potion.

  3. Add one or more ingredients to the top slot of the brewing stand to modify the potion.

  4. Wait for the potion to brew. The brewing time varies depending on the ingredients used.

  5. Once the potion is done brewing, take it out of the brewing stand by right-clicking on the glass bottle.


You can also use blaze powder to speed up the brewing process.


Some common ingredients in Minecraft include:


  • Nether wart: necessary for all potion recipes.
