How to make potions in Minecraft – basic potion making setup & ingredients

In addition to the brewing stand, a player will require blaze powder, 1-3 glass bottles (made with 3 glasses), and a water supply to fill the bottles within their corresponding positions (a water source block or a cauldron).

Fill the glass bottles with water by right-clicking on a water source while holding the bottles. Once a player has completed filling the bottles, they will start brewing.

Fill the brewing stand with 1-3 water bottles and 1 blaze powder, then fill the top slot with the first basic ingredient.

You can use additional components in the top slot to create a variety of potions (not all of which are good).

Increasing the effectiveness of Minecraft potions 

Most of the potions in Minecraft have a 3-minute duration. However, you may increase the time restriction to 8-minutes by introducing Redstone or Glowstone to a potion that has already been brewed. If Redstone improves the duration of a potion’s impact, Glowstone will produce a more potent potion in a shorter time. A Potion of Speed made with Redstone, for instance, will last eight minutes, but a Potion of Speed made with Glowstone will last for only 1 minute and 30 seconds but delivers a larger speed boost.

Give it a try if you’ve never crafted a potion in Minecraft. The increased HP, strength, and speed will give you an advantage in battles against adversaries in the Nether and bouts against the Wither and the End Dragon.
