Last but not least, put the specific item at the top slot to start brewing the Potion. It takes about 20 seconds to brew Potion using a Brewing Stand.


  1. The specific item here means the particular item to make the Potion itself. Each Potion has a different item as a requirement. For example, to make an Awkward Potion, you need to use Nether Wart.
  2. You can brew Potions up to 20 times using a single Blaze Powder.
  3. All Potions in Minecraft use Awkward Potion as their base Potion.

Brewing Stand also can upgrade and extend the duration of Potions. Extending the duration period of Potions requires Redstone while Upgrading the effect of Potions requires Glowstone.
