Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition guide to brewing (Photos)

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition added the power to brew potions with Title Update 7 that was released Wednesday. How are you going to get to brewing a Potion of Strength or Potion of Invisibility? How will you create Splash Potions to harm unfriendly mobs? Look into our guide below to determine.

Before you could brew your first potion in Minecraft, you have to to craft four things – a Cauldron, a Bucket, a Brewing Stand and Glass Bottles. Listed below are the ingredients for every.

  • Cauldron – 7 Iron Ingots
  • Bucket – Craft a Bucket using 3 Iront Ingots then equip the Bucket and left-click water.
  • Brewing Stand – 1 Blaze Rod plus 3 Cobblestone
  • Glass Bottle – 3 Glass blocks

Now that those are all crafted you must discover a spot to lay the Cauldron and Brewing Stand so that you can begin brewing. We recommend putting the Brewing Stand as close as possible to a water source.

BASICS

Fill the Glass Bottles with water via the left-trigger on a source of water.

If you ought to make potions somewhere that isn’t near water you want to use the Cauldron, multiple Buckets and carry a sizable stack of Glass Bottles. Take the Buckets and fill them with water. Empty the Bucket into the Cauldron after which fill the Glass Bottles with water to make Water Bottles. Note that every Cauldron jam-packed with water can fill three Glass Bottles. Also note that Water Bottles don’t stack.

Now visit the Brewing Stand and use it to increase the brewing interface. Place as much as three Water Bottles inside the slots on the bottom then place the first Ingredient inside the fit in the head. Once the brewing is complete, you could drop in another ingredient to further alter or enhance the potion which include adding Gunpowder to show a Potion right into a Splash Potion.

Tip: Always attempt to use three Glass Bottles at a time when brewing. Just a single Primary Ingredient can be utilized to create three potions so it’s very inefficient to create just one potion at a time unless you’re in a pinch.

Potions are brewed in stages and the 1st potion you would need to brew before you will get to the more interesting ones is the Awkward Potion. The first ingredient for this can be a Nether Wart. You may then add additional ingredients to the Awkward Potion akin to Sugar or a Ghast Tear to create an invaluable potion.

Creating a potion by starting with every other ingredient leads to either Mundane or Thick Potions which might be essentially useless at once and might only be used to create a Potion of Weakness after combining the Mundane/Thick Potion with a Fermented Spider Eye. If you want a Potion of Weakness, you must just start with the Fermented Spider Eye.
