The bottom 3 slots are for glass bottles. These bottles must be filled with Water or a potion. The upper slot is used to add an ingredient into the potions below. And the upper left slot is for Blaze Powder which will fuel 20 brews per powder (as determined by whenever an item is placed in the top slot).
