Brewing allows the player to make Potions that can benefit or harm the player when used. In turn, the player can add Gunpowder to any potion while brewing to convert this potion into a splash potion, enabling the player to put the effect on another mob when it is thrown as a projectile.

All brewing requires a Brewing Stand. The gallery below contains a chart of various potions that can be made, and how to make them. A separate detailed list of all potions and their recipes can also be found here.
