Complete Minecraft Brewing Guide: All Minecraft Potion Recipes and How to Brew Them

If you’ve ever wanted to take a swim in lava or completely vanish from view, there’s a potion for you. And these potions can prove to be exceptionally useful when you’re fighting off mobs or exploring the Nether. But making them can be more difficult than you might expect.

How to Brew Potions in Minecraft

When it comes to potions, there are three possible types. There’s the Awkward Potion, the Splash Potion, and the Lingering Potions. Awkward Potions are the foundational building block for all potions, while Splash and Lingering Potions are umbrellas that the potions will fall into. So, let’s dive right in.

To make an Awkward Potion, you’ll need a Glass Bottle. Glass Bottles can be found by crafting three blocks of sand, which can be found at beaches or in deserts, and turning it into a glass bottle. Or you might be able to find one by fishing. Finding sand is much easier, though.

Once you have a Glass Bottle, fill it with water. This will turn it into a Water Bottle.

Next, you’ll need a Nether Wart, which you can get by visiting the Nether and locating a Nether Fortress. Brew the Nether Wart and Water Bottle together to create an Awkward Potion.

How to Make Splash Potions in Minecraft

Now, you’ll have to decide what type of potion you want to make. There are Splash Potions, which are essentially potions that apply a status effect to you or whoever you use it on directly. These potions can be crafted by going to a Brewing Stand, adding the ingredients listed in the chart, and adding gunpowder.

How to Make Lingering Potions

Lingering Potions are potions that are used on an area to create a lingering effect. A Lingering Potion can be made by going to a Brewing Stand and turning a Splash Potion into a Lingering Potion. To do this, you’ll need Dragon’s Breath.
