Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Base Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Base ingredients are the first ingredients added to a water bottle in order to start the brewing process. The base ingredients are as follows:

Name When added Makes
Nether Wart Awkward Potion
Glowstone Dust Thick Potion
Redstone Mundane Potion (extended)
Fermented Spider Eye Weakness Potion

Secondary Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Secondary ingredients imbue an awkward potion with a particular effect, but they do not alter the potion duration or intensity. When added directly to a water bottle, any of these ingredients will produce a mundane potion (with the exception of the golden carrot which can't be brewed into a water bottle to make a potion). The types of secondary ingredients are as follows:

Name
Blaze Powder
Fermented Spider Eye
Ghast Tear
Glistering Melon
Golden Carrot
Magma Cream
Pufferfish
Rabbit's Foot
Sugar
Spider Eye
