Getting started on potion brewing in Minecraft can certainly be confusing, but before you can get started, you will need a brewing stand! So today, we will go over how to make a brewing stand in Minecraft!
Getting Blaze Rods
The most important thing that you’re going to need to craft and use your brewing stand is going to be blaze rods. These are found inside the nether from blazes.
Specifically, you are going to be looking for a Nether fortress. Inside Nether fortresses are where blazes spawn.
Unfortunately, there is no simple way of finding a Nether fortress on an already created world. You will have to explore your world’s Nether for one.
The good news is that they stick out pretty well, and you should notice if you get even remotely close.
Tips for Fighting Blaze’s
Once you find your Nether fortress, you are going to be looking for a blaze spawner. You will know pretty quickly once you find one as blazes will start to fill the room with you and light everything in sight on fire.
The most important thing you can have to fight a blaze at this stage in the game is a shield. The shield will keep you safe from the blaze’s fireballs and let you get close without taking too much damage.
It would also be wise to bring full iron gear, armor, and a good supply of food and cobblestone.
You will need one blaze rod per brewing stand, but you will also need extra blaze rods to make blaze powder to fuel your brewing stand.
So be sure to stock up on a few before leaving your Nether fortress!
Crafting your Brewing Stand
Once you are safely back home with blaze rods in hand, it’s time to make your brewing stand.
Crafting the stand is incredibly simple. You need one blaze rod and three cobblestones.
Once you have your brewing stand crafted, you are ready to place it down and start making potions.
