Btw i have been playing minecraft since 0.0.9a which was before infdev... Which was back in May 16, 2009... So if you have a minecraft question ask me I should know the answer.(Also yeah i know about the time when i joined the forums... But for a while i was never social until like june of 2011... So i never bothered to make a minecraft forum account till like june... Because it would never get used.)
For some tips (you have a brewing stand already, huh?): craft bottles as you craft buckets, but with glass (not glass panes), then, fill them with water, like a bucket (lava don't works). Put the Water Bottle at the bottle icons in the brewing stand. Up to 3 potions can be made at the same time. For recipes and other minecraft tips about dungeons, The End dimension and more at minecraftwiki.net and search for potions!
