Having dye to decorate with can easily brighten up the aesthetics of whatever item or structure you wish to change. What almost all dyes have in common is that they will require an ingredient or set of ingredients that you will need to gather to make them. The brown dye is no exception to this rule.
In this article, we shall go over what exactly you will need to get brown dye within the game, and what ingredient you will need to obtain it.
There is only one required ingredient for making brown dye and that ingredient is cocoa beans. The beans themselves are not too rare or difficult for you to find. Rather it’s the biome that they are located in that can make things challenging for you. Cocoa beans are only located within jungle biomes, and this particular biome can be quite difficult to find due to how rare they are.
Keep an eye out for savanna and desert biomes while traveling on their borders, and you should eventually find a jungle biome with enough invested time. The cocoa beans themselves can be found on the trunks of the trees that make up the ecosystem of the jungle biome.
They hang from these trunks like chandeliers, and with a precise strike you can collect your coveted beans.
From there you simply turn it into your dye and you have what you have desired!
When it comes to brown dye you have a multitude of options before you as to what can be accomplished with it Here is a list of items that you can create below with such a dye:
As you can tell, the items that a brown dye can create are purely for cosmetic purposes. In short it changes the color scheme of the item based on the brown complexion of the dye that you are using.
Besides going to the jungle, you also have the option of acquiring cocoa beans through wandering traders or through fishing.
Though keep in mind, that both options aren’t going to always succeed in terms of consistency.
You have the option of getting dye through the wandering trader like the cocoa beans, but it won’t be a very efficient method. You can always access them through the items menu in creative mode alternatively.
