What do you want from brewing that the vanilla stand can't handle?
is not like the brewing stand isnt good enough at what i does, and with the help of a hopper i gets even better when you want to make specific potions without being switching ingredients every 20 seconds.
anyway, given the fact that almost everything is already automatized in someway thanks to your mod i though about one of the few things that was not automatized yet.
i have a general idea about how your machine could work in its gui, i will try to explain here more or less but sorry in advanced for my english.
the machine could use all the bars of other machines, because in my opinion an autobrewer should requiere power to function, the liquid bar could be used to store water. then i am thinking some input slots. one should be for empty bottles and then there could be space for ingredientes. these spaces should be numbered in some sort like the selected slot of a turle in computercraft, that can rotate. then you put your ingredients in the order that you want, in case of a extended swift potion the order should be:
nether wart, sugar, redstone
and the machine automatically uses some of the water to fill the bottles and uses one of each of the ingredients to give you 3 extended swift potions in other 3 output slots in less time than a brewing stand would make them because is using power. or if you dont want to use power then i should take the same time i suppose.
the ingredient part could be made in different ways also, for example having a buffer for items like the liquidcrafter and then making a "template" with the order of the ingredientes in other row from left to right for example.
is hope is clear enough. i can try to make a paint image if not.
again is not like the vanilla brewing stand is not good enough, not saying either that you should make this machine, is just that potion brewing is one of the few things that this mod had to automatize to basically have everything in vanilla minecraft automatized in some way.
