How to Make a Brewing Stand in Minecraft
Alright, Minecraft wizards-in-training, before we start mixing up some fire-resisting magic, we need to set up our own little lab. Think of it like being a chemist, but in the blocky world of Minecraft. The first thing we need? A brewing stand.
If you’ve already got a brewing stand, feel free to jump ahead to the section about making a Fire Resistance Potion. But for those of you who are just getting started, I’m here to guide you through creating your very own brewing stand. It’s like building your first chemistry set!
What You Need for Your Brewing Stand:
- Three Cobblestones: You probably already have these from your mining adventures.
- One Blaze Rod: This one’s a bit trickier. You’ll need to defeat a Blaze, those fiery creatures in the Nether. Be brave!
- Open the Crafting Interface: This is where the magic happens.
- Place the Blaze Rod: Put it right in the center of the top row of the crafting grid.
- Line Up the Cobblestones: Directly below the Blaze Rod, fill the middle row with your three cobblestones, one in each square.
- Craft the Stand: And voila! You’ve got yourself a brewing stand.
How to Make a Fire Resistance Potion in Minecraft
Great job on crafting your brewing stand! Now, let’s dive into the exciting part – creating a Fire Resistance potion. This potion is like a superhero cape against all things fiery in Minecraft. Whether it’s lava pools or Blaze attacks, this potion has got your back.
Ingredients for Fire Resistance Potion:
- Magma Cream (one): This is the key ingredient. You can find it in the Nether or make it yourself.
- Nether Wart (one): Another Nether specialty, essential for brewing.
- Water Bottles (one or three): Fill glass bottles with water or, if you’re in Creative mode, grab the “Water Bottle No Effects.”
- Blaze Powder (at least two): This is the fuel for your brewing stand. You’ll need this to activate the stand.
Brewing Your Potion:
- Prepare the Bottles: Craft one to three glass bottles and fill them with water. Use these on a water source block. In Creative mode, you can just use “Water Bottle No Effects.”
- Power Up the Brewing Stand: Open the brewing stand interface and add Blaze powder to ignite it.
- Add Water Bottles: Place your filled water bottles in the bottom boxes of the brewing stand.
- Brew with Nether Wart: Place a Nether Wart in the top middle slot. This turns your water bottles into “Awkward Potions.”
- Add the Magic of Magma Cream: Now, replace the Nether Wart with Magma Cream in the same slot. Brew, and voilà, you’ve got your Fire Resistance potion!
Each potion grants you three minutes of fire resistance. Imagine being able to swim in lava without a worry!
- You might also find these potions with witches or trade them for Gold Ingots.
- This brewing recipe works across all Minecraft versions and editions, including Bedrock and Java.
How to Increase the Duration of a Fire Resistance Potion in Minecraft
You’ve got your Fire Resistance potions – that’s awesome! But what if I told you that you can make them last even longer? Instead of just three minutes, how about stretching that protection to a whole eight minutes? Let’s get into how you can supercharge your potions for those extra-long journeys in the Nether.
Extra Ingredients to Extend Potion Duration:
- Blaze Powder: You’ll probably have some leftover from before, but keep one extra just in case.
- Your Fire Resistance Potion(s): The ones you’ve already brewed.
- Redstone Dust (one piece): This is the secret ingredient for extending the potion’s duration.
- Water Bottles: Just like before, you’ll need one for each potion you’re enhancing.
Steps to Boost Your Potion:
- Check Your Blaze Powder: Make sure your Brewing Stand still has enough Blaze Powder. If it’s running low, just add some more.
- Place Your Potions: Put your Fire Resistance Potion(s) in the bottom slots of the brewing stand.
- Add Redstone Dust: Drop a single piece of Redstone Dust into the top slot.
- Brew and Wait: The brewing process will start. Just wait a bit until it finishes.
- Check the Duration: Once done, hover over the potion in the brewing stand. You should now see a new duration time: 8:00.
By following these steps, if you brewed three potions at once, you’re now looking at a total of 24 minutes of fire resistance (8 minutes per potion). That’s a lot better than the original 9 minutes (3 minutes per potion), right?
How to Make a Fire Resistance Splash Potion in Minecraft
Ready to take your potion-making skills to the next level in Minecraft? Let’s turn those Fire Resistance potions into Splash potions! Splash potions can be thrown, affecting anyone they hit. This is perfect for quickly protecting your friends (or yourself) in a pinch.
Ingredients for Your Splash Potion:
- Blaze Powder: You’ll likely have some left over. Always good to have an extra just in case.
- Gunpowder (one piece): This is what turns a regular potion into a splash potion.
- Your Fire Resistance Potion(s): The ones you brewed earlier.
Brewing the Splash Potion:
- Check Your Blaze Powder: Make sure there’s enough Blaze Powder in your Brewing Stand. If not, add more to the upper left corner slot.
- Place Your Fire Resistance Potions: Put them in the bottom three boxes of the brewing interface.
- Add Gunpowder: Now, place a piece of Gunpowder in the top middle slot.
- Let it Brew: Wait for the brewing process to complete.
- Grab Your Splash Potions: Once finished, you’ll have Fire Resistance Splash Potions ready to use.
- Be Prepared: Blaze Powder is used in multiple brewing sessions, so keep an eye on its level in the stand.
- Splash Away: These splash potions are great for quick applications in dangerous situations. Just throw them at your feet or at your friends to provide instant fire protection.
