Issues relating to «Brewing Stand» are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.

  • Even when the brewing stand is not in use, there is still smoke coming out of the top of it (because of the hot blaze rod at the center).
  • When a brewing stand is broken, particles from the bottle will appear, even if no bottle is in the stand.
  • No matter what potion (including empty and water bottles) is in the stand it will always look like a full red bottle.
  • Brewing stands will always face east, no matter what direction it was placed.
  • According to Searge, blaze powder being used as fuel was added as a way to not destroy the game progression because there is a brewing stand beneath the igloo, preventing the player from using it before going to the Nether.[2]

Brewing – Official Minecraft Wiki

Potion brewing chart (most efficient recipes, excludes splash potions).

Brewing is the process of creating potions, splash potions and lingering potions by adding various ingredients to water bottles in a brewing stand.

Brewing potions[edit]

By placing one or more bottles in the lower three slots of the brewing interface, an ingredient in the upper slot, and blaze powder in the fuel slot, you can distill the ingredient into each bottle and brew potions which may be consumed to grant an effect to the player.

Every potion starts with a water bottle, made by filling a glass bottle at a water source or filled cauldron. Using blaze powder, the next step is to add a base ingredient to create a base potion, usually nether wart to create an awkward potion. By brewing an effect ingredient into the awkward potion in the same manner, you can create a potion with a working effect. A modifier ingredient may be added to make the effect more intense or last longer, or change the effect entirely. Gunpowder can be added to a potion at any stage to convert it to a splash potion, which can be thrown (or fired using a dispenser) to disperse its effect in a radius. Finally, dragon’s breath can be added to a splash potion to convert it to a lingering potion, which can be used to emit clouds that can renew the effect (ex. Healing lingering potions will heal you more the longer you stand in the cloud). Each brewing step takes 20 seconds.

Each piece of blaze powder used provides fuel for brewing 20 batches of potions. Fuel is consumed when a brewing operation starts; it is not recovered if the operation is halted prematurely by removing the ingredient or potion bottles.

Brewing equipment[edit]

Ingredients[edit]

Base ingredients and modifiers[edit]

Base ingredients are ingredients which can be added directly to a water bottle, and are the starting point of all potions. Nether Wart is the most fundamental of the base ingredients, as it is required to make the vast majority of potions.

Modifiers are ingredients used to alter the properties of a potion, or to change a potion effect into a different one. The fermented spider eye is unique in that it is the only modifier which can be brewed directly into an effective potion.

Corrupting Effect: Fermented Spider Eyes will change a potion’s base effect, often reversing it or producing a negative potion.

  • A corrupted potion usually does the opposite of the original potion.
  • Corrupting an enhanced or extended potion into an effect which supports the modifier will result in a potion with the same modifier applied.
  • Corrupting an extended potion of Poison will simply result in a basic potion of Harming. Enhanced potions of Leaping or Swiftness cannot be corrupted.
  • Potions of Invisibility are considered a «corrupted» version of the Potions of Night Vision. Instead of seeing at maximum brightness, you turn invisible.

Splash and Lingering potions: Any potion can be turned into a splash potion, and subsequently, a lingering potion.

  • Splash potions and lingering potions can be modified in exactly the same manner as their normal counterparts. For instance, a splash water bottle can be brewed with any of the base ingredients, though the result will remain a splash potion.
  • In Bedrock Edition, splash potions have only three-fourths of the duration of the drinkable form. In Java Edition, splash and drinkable forms have the same duration.
  • Lingering potions have only one-fourth of the duration of the drinkable form. For instance, a drinkable potion effect of 8:00 will be reduced to 2:00 as a lingering potion.

Effect ingredients[edit]

Effect ingredients imbue an awkward potion with a particular effect, but do not alter potion duration or intensity.
When added directly to a water bottle, most of these ingredients will produce a mundane potion. The exceptions to this are golden carrot, pufferfish, turtle shell and phantom membrane, which cannot be added directly to a water bottle. You must add netherwart in order to work.

Elements[edit]

In the Education Edition, or Bedrock Edition with Education features enabled, certain elements can be used as ingredients to brew cures which remove specific negative status effects.

ElementIconEffect Cured
BismuthNausea
CalciumBlindness
CobaltWeakness
SilverPoison

These are ONLY in the Education Edition, not in the regular Minecraft platform.

Brewing recipes[edit]

Base potions[edit]

Base potions are potions without effects, brewed by adding a single base ingredient to a water bottle. Of these, only the awkward potion can be imbued with an effect ingredient to produce a potion effect.

PotionReagent, BasePrecursor to
Awkward PotionEffect potions
Mundane PotionNone
Thick PotionNone

Effect potions[edit]

Effect potions are primarily created by adding an effect ingredient to an awkward potion, however, certain effects require a potion to be corrupted by a fermented spider eye. The potion of weakness can additionally be created by simply adding a fermented spider eye to a water bottle.

Cures[edit]

Cures are brewed from Awkward Potions using different elements‌[Bedrock and Education editions only]. These drinks will remove the specified effect when drunk, and cannot be modified into splash, lingering, extended or enhanced versions.

PotionReagent, BaseEffect
AntidoteCures Poison
ElixirCures Weakness
Eye DropsCures Blindness
TonicCures Nausea

Unbrewable potions[edit]

The Potion of Luck‌[Java and Legacy Console editions only] and the Potion of Decay‌[Bedrock Edition only] cannot be brewed, and can only be obtained by commands such as /give @p minecraft:potion 1 0 {Potion:luck}, or through the creative inventory. A Potion of Slowness V is also available in the creative menu in Java Edition. You can get potions of decay in survival mode from the Cauldron in a Witch Hut.

History[edit]

Potions brewing in cauldrons (1.9 pre2).

Java Edition
?The brewing system was originally meant to be procedural, meaning that the recipes were meant to be different each time one generated a Minecraft world.[1]
1.0.0Beta 1.9 Prerelease 2Initially, the cauldron was where potions were brewed, though cauldrons were not assigned a block ID, rendering potions unobtainable except through modding the cauldron so that it would be obtainable. When the cauldron was obtained, potions could be brewed by adding water to the cauldron followed by certain ingredients. Correctly combined ingredients would confer purely beneficial potion effects, and incorrect combinations added negative effects. The system was complicated, lacked a GUI, and formed many duplicate potions (i.e. two potions that were exactly the same could be made in several different ways), so Notch and Jeb came up with a new brewing method using a brewing stand.[2]
Beta 1.9 Prerelease 3A brewing GUI was added and most duplicate potions were removed (the total possible potions went down from 150 combinations to only 25 different potions in 31 combinations). Some status effects available in earlier 1.9 pre-releases as potions became inaccessible (e.g. Nausea, Blindness and Invisibility).
Beta 1.9 Prerelease 4Throwable splash potions introduced – brewed by placing gunpowder and any potion together in a brewing stand.
Glistering melon was added to be the ingredient for the Potion of Healing, until this point conferred by the ghast tear, which was itself changed to create the Potion of Regeneration instead.
Converted certain ingredients into base-secondary ingredients (the spider eye, glistering melon and blaze powder made Mundane Potion when brewed into a water bottle in addition to their previous functions), bringing the potion total to 28 different potions in 35 combinations.
1.112w01aThe time to brew potions was decreased to 20 seconds.
1.4.212w34aBrewing recipes for Potions of Night Vision and Invisibility added: Potion of Night Vision is brewed by adding a golden carrot to an Awkward Potion. Potion of Invisibility is brewed by adding a fermented spider eye to a Potion of Night Vision.
1.513w01aHoppers added, which can place and take items in and out from brewing stands.
1.7.213w36aPotions of Water Breathing added; they can be brewed by adding a pufferfish to an Awkward Potion.
1.814w27aAdded Potion of Leaping; it is brewed by adding a rabbit’s foot to an Awkward Potion.
1.8.1pre1The potion of leaping can now be extended using redstone.
1.915w31aGlowstone and redstone can no longer be added to already extended or enhanced potions.
Fermented spider eyes can no longer be added to enhanced potions of Speed or Leaping, but can still be added to extended potions of Poison.
Potions of Weakness can no longer be made using a thick potion, mundane potion, awkward potion, potion of Regeneration, or potion of Strength.
Potions of Slowness can no longer be made using a potion of Fire Resistance.
Potions of Harming can no longer be made using a potion of Water Breathing.
Removed reverted potions and «extended» mundane potion, as well as unused potion IDs. See removed features for more information on reverted potions or unused potions.
Splash potions can now be created from all potions, including water bottles.
15w33aAdded lingering potions.
15w42aBlaze powder is now required as fuel for brewing.
15w43aBlaze powder as fuel reduced from 30 points to 20.

Potion type history[edit]

Based on information found in minecraft.jar/lang/en_US.lang, the current potion types are listed below:

  • Potion of Swiftness
  • Potion of Slowness
  • Potion of Strength
  • Potion of Weakness
  • Potion of Healing
  • Potion of Harming
  • Potion of Regeneration
  • Potion of Fire Resistance
  • Potion of Water Breathing
  • Potion of Poison
  • Potion of Night Vision
  • Potion of Invisibility
  • Potion of Leaping
  • Potion of the Turtle Master

Due to changes in the brewing system, the following potions are currently not accessible:

  • Potion of Haste
  • Potion of Dullness
  • Potion of Nausea
  • Potion of Blindness
  • Potion of Hunger
  • Potion of Decay
  • Potion of Resistance

Some potions also do not have a real name in minecraft (i.e. Potion of potion.healthBoost.postFix) and are currently not accessible

  • Potion of potion.healthBoost.postFix
  • Potion of potion.absorption.postFix
  • Potion of potion.saturation.postFix

Splash potion brewed using gunpowder.

  • As long as at least one of the three bottom spaces is filled, the brewing will continue, and additional bottles of water or potion can be added. However, if the ingredient is removed, or the bottom 3 slots are emptied at any time during the process, the process will stop and nothing will have been brewed.

How to Open a Brewing Stand in Minecraft

This Minecraft tutorial explains how to open a brewing stand with screenshots and step-by-step instructions.

In Minecraft, you need to open and use a brewing stand to brew in the game. Let’s explore how to open a brewing stand.

Required Materials

In Minecraft, these are the materials you can use to open a brewing stand:

Steps to Open a Brewing Stand

1. Place the Brewing Stand

First thing, make sure that you have made a brewing stand.

Add the brewing stand to your hotbar so that it is an item that you can use.

Next, position your pointer (the plus sign) on the block where you want to place the brewing stand. You should see the block become highlighted in your game window.

The game control to place the brewing stand depends on the version of Minecraft:

  • For Java Edition (PC/Mac), right click on the block.
  • For Pocket Edition (PE), you tap on the block.
  • For Xbox 360 and Xbox One, press the LT button on the Xbox controller.
  • For PS3 and PS4, press the L2 button on the PS controller.
  • For Wii U, press the ZL button on the gamepad.
  • For Nintendo Switch, press the ZL button on the controller.
  • For Windows 10 Edition, right click on the block.
  • For Education Edition, right click on the block.

Remember where you put your brewing stand because you will need to open it each time you want to brew a potion in the game.

2. Open the Brewing Stand

To open your brewing stand, you need to stand in front of it.

The game control to open your Brewing Stand depends on the version of Minecraft:

  • For Java Edition (PC/Mac), right click on the brewing stand.
  • For Pocket Edition (PE), you tap on the brewing stand.
  • For Xbox 360 and Xbox One, press the LT button on the Xbox controller.
  • For PS3 and PS4, press the L2 button on the PS controller.
  • For Wii U, press the ZL button on the gamepad.
  • For Nintendo Switch, press the ZL button on the controller.
  • For Windows 10 Edition, right click on the brewing stand.
  • For Education Edition, right click on the brewing stand.

Now your brewing stand is open and you can see your brewing menu.

In the Brewing Stand menu, you place ingredients in the top box and the potions are created in the bottom three boxes. In newer versions of Minecraft, the brewing stand requires blaze powder to activate which is placed in the far left box.

TIP: Be sure to add items to your hotbar so that you start using your brewing stand.

Congratulations, you just learned how to open your brewing stand in Minecraft.

Working Brewing Stand [Redstone] (1.2 Only!)

The brewing stand is a block in Minecraft which can be used for brewing potions. You can then consume the potions to gain temporary powers such as increased strength or agility. This is a redstone map which recreates the block on a much bigger scale. And since it’s entirely powered by redstone you can actually use it to brew potions!

Creator: TalMelamed, Twitter Account
Updated: 15 August, 2017 (read changelog)

How does it work?

You can get the brewing ingredients from the chests. Drop the ingredients in the hoppers to add the ingredients to start brewing the items.

Once you’ve added the ingredients and something to power the brewing stand (e.g. blaze powder) then it will start working by itself.

However, to retrieve the items it looks like you need to press the “Click to finish!” button as this will complete the process.

As soon as that is done you can retrieve the finished items from the chests which open up at the bottom of the structure.

You can examine the way the structure has been built by going around the structure. There you will find a big opening which you can enter through and look at the redstone.

This is what the brewing stand structure looks like from afar. As you can see, it is a brewing stand on top of a birch wood block.

Changelog

  • Now requires blaze powder to make potions
  • Now you can put 1-3 water bottles

Brew Stand

 

We need a stand of some sort to hold our kettles and other brewing equipment.

Just about any stand will do, but remember that it must be strong enough to hold hundreds of pounds of liquid.

Our brewing room was originally a cold storage room located under the front steps of the house. It’s fairly small at only 5.5 feet wide by 11.5 feet long, with a 7 foot ceiling. Space is at a premium since the room also serves as a wine cellar, so we built our brew stand just large enough to hold all three kettles comfortably. This resulted in a stand that is 64″ wide, 34.5″ high, and 26″ deep. We chose to build a wood stand as it matches the previously built wine rack.

If you’re looking for something more industrial, consider a 24 x 60 inch stainless steel commercial work table with a lower shelf. It is the perfect size for our 20 gallon kettles and is what we use now in our newly built (larger) brewery.

We want the kettles to be up around arm height when standing up to make adjustments easy. The pumps work best when placed as far below the kettles as possible so we built a second shelf below. The more vertical distance you can put between the kettle outputs and the pump inputs, the better.

The shelf below also holds the wort chiller and a compact shop vac (used to evacuate water from the various parts after cleaning).

Completed brew stand:

Kettles and other equipment installed:

We built our original stand out of inexpensive softwood lumber that is typically used in construction. It’s often called SPF for the three most common white woods used (Spruce, Pine, and Fir) and is available at any lumber yard or home improvement store. Standard North American nominal sizes such as 2×4″, 2×6″, and 1×4″ were used to build a stand that is very strong and stable (a requirement as full 20 gallon kettles are very heavy).

Hex bolts/nuts/washers, lag screws, and regular soft wood screws were used to hold it all together.

The wood was then stained to match the red terracotta tiles found on the floor, walls and ceiling of our brewery.

 

New brewery (circa 2013+) with stainless steel 24×60″ stand:
