"Most efficient recipes"[edit]

While this section was useful before, all inefficient recipes have been removed (with one exception). Additionally, the page overhaul I performed recently has made the recipes fairly simple to look up in the Potions section. With this in mind, is there even a need for the efficient recipes section anymore? - Princess Nightmoon (TalkContributions) 16:48, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

Recipes not mentioned[edit]

I found that in Bedrock Edition, putting a Fermented Spider Eye in an awkward, mundane or thick potion can make a weakness potion, and in a long mundane potion can make a long weakness potion. I didn't find this information in the page. Should I add it? --87.202.191.35 13:21, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

1.16 makes brewing more difficult[edit]

Due to the 1.16 update, I’ve found that it’s more difficult to find fortresses, therefore making nether wart and potions that need nether wart for crafting much more scarce –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Enchanter511 (talkcontribs) at 00:16, 8 September 2020 (UTC).

Fortresses are more evenly and lightly distributed throughout the Nether than before 1.16. You can test this yourself by changing the version field for any particular seed in the Nether Fortress Finder web app. ~ Amatulic (talk) 17:44, 3 October 2020 (UTC)

"Brewing equipment"[edit]

This lists a cauldron for some reason. It can hold potions (in 1 game version) and it can hold water, but it's not really relevant to brewing at all. For either use, it's possible (any by far the simplest solution) to just store bottles of potion in ones inventory, or a common chest. And it's not like the cauldron itself could be a water source. Just fill the water bottles at the water source. And if there's a need for a lot of water bottles, just store them in a chest/barrel.

So a chest/barrel is superior in every way. Shouldn't those also be listed then? And if the instructions mention that one would need a bucket to fill the the cauldron with water, then obviously, the bucket should also be listed as relevant equipment.

My point is that the cauldron should be removed for not being relevant. 90.191.109.211 13:35, 3 October 2020 (UTC)

A bucket can't hold a potion, but a cauldron can. There are some accounts of using a cauldron as an infinite water source in Bedrock but I haven't been able to reproduce it. A cauldron is simply a quick way to store a potion without opening up and manipulating an inventory. ~ Amatulic (talk) 17:46, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
