How to Make a Brewing Stand in Minecraft

If you are interested in alchemizing some potions you will need a brewing stand to start. A brewing stand is a fundamental basis for making potions. It is like the crafting table for potions. Brewing potions can be instrumental for your playthrough in Minecraft and it can make life easier or more difficult.


Required Items to make a Brewing Stand


To make a brewing stand in Minecraft, you will need:

  1. Three pieces of cobblestone
  2. A blaze rod
  3. Crafting table


The recipe for a brewing stand calls for cobblestone and a blaze rod. The hardest part of this would of course be locating a nether fortress where blaze enemies can be found. You will also need a crafting table in order to craft a brewing stand.


How to make a Brewing Stand in Minecraft


In a Nutshell:


To make a brewing stand, open the crafting area made up of the 3x3 grid. Fill the entirety of the 2nd row with 3 cobblestones, then place a blaze rod in the center of the first row. Now simply click the rails and drag it into your inventory.


Step-by-Step Guide(with Pictures):


Here is the step-by-step pictorial guide you need to follow to Make a Brewing Stand in Minecraft:


There are not many components to make a brewing stand, but the difficulty comes from how hard it will be to find a nether fortress. Your world generation may be kind and your nether fortress could be found right next to your portal, but you will most likely have to traverse the dangerous landscape of the nether in order to find your blaze rod.


To make a brewing stand, Open your crafting table and place the 3 cobblestones in the bottom row and the blaze rod above it in the center.


Crafting a brewing stand


You now have the fundamental basis for crafting any kind of potion. I would recommend placing a water source block close to wherever you decide to place your brewing stand. You will need to fill up glass bottles with water before brewing any potion.


How does a Brewing Stand work?


The brewing stand UI may seem intimidating at first glance but it is incredibly user-friendly. You will notice four slots in the menu of the brewing stand. Three at the bottom that are marked for bottles and one at the top left with an unfamiliar icon.

Bottles of water go into the bottom three slots. The funny looking symbol at the top left is indicative of blaze powder. Blaze powder is the fuel that makes your brewing stand work. Think of it like coal for a furnace.


Finally the last slot is for whatever ingredient you would like to use to brew your potion. Only certain ingredients will yield a usable potion and many of them start with an awkward potion base. To turn water bottles into awkward potions you will need nether wart.

FAQs


Q. Where can you get a Brewing Stand in Minecraft?


Brewing Stands can naturally generate in villages. It is the job block for clerics so if you see a pink-robed villager in a village chances are you can find a brewing stand in his house.


Brewing stands are also generated in end ships. Inside the ship itself will house one brewing stand complete with some potions of health ready for use.


You may also find a brewing stand in the basement of a naturally generated igloo.


Q. What can you make in a Brewing Stand?


Your options are limited to potions but you can make up to twenty different kinds of potions. Four different base potions and sixteen different effect potions. Each potion has its own recipe and can be further enhanced with glowstone or redstone. You can also brew effect potions with gunpowder to turn the effect into a splash potion.


If you go to fight the ender dragon make sure you take some empty glass bottles with you. When the ender dragon attacks you with the breath attack you can scoop some of it into a glass bottle to have dragon’s breath. Dragon’s breath can be used to make lingering potions which leaves a cloud of the potion effect on the ground for a short period.


Conclusion


Congratulations! You are now the proud owner of a brewing stand and can get started on alchemizing any potion you would like. Many potion effects are beneficial and even the negative effects can prove to be advantageous if brewed correctly. Brewing stands are required to craft potions and potion effects are very powerful. Play around with these potion effects to become a powerful alchemist.
