Brewing allows a player to make Potions that may benefit or harm a player when used. In turn, a player can addGunpowder
to any potion while brewing, to convert the potion into a splash potion, enabling a player to put the effect on another mob or multiple players when it's thrown as a projectile. All brewing requires a Brewing Stand, and as of 1.9 - The Combat Update, Blaze Powder is required for any of the brewing processes to function.
The gallery below contains a chart of the many 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.
