First Appearance

Update 0.12.1

Brewing is a game mechanic that allows a Player to brew Potions with the help of a Brewing Stand. It was added in Update 0.12.1.

How to Brew

Brewing occurs when at least one Water Bottle is placed in one of the three Water Bottle slots in the Brewing Stand and a brewing ingredient is placed in the ingredient slot, with Blaze Powder in the power slot, the result being a potion that gives the Player (or Mob) Status Effects


  • Before Update 0.12.1, when the Nether wasn't available, there was speculation whether this could be acquired through the Nether Reactor.
  • A Potion of Weakness is the only potion that doesn't need an Awkward Potion to brew.
  • Bedrock Exclusive: The Player does not need to use Blaze Powder as Fuel.
    • This will no longer be the case after Update 1.2.
