Required items to make Strength Potion
To craft a strength potion in minecraft, you will need:
The hardest part of brewing potions is finding a nether fortress. The fortress will house blaze and the nether wart necessary to make strength potions. You will need to defeat some blaze enemies in order to get blaze rods, a material used for crafting the brewing stand as well as fueling it.
How to Make Strength Potion in Minecraft?
Step-1 You will need to go to the nether in order to find blaze. Build a nether portal by placing obsidian four blocks wide and five blocks tall.
Step-2 Next light the nether portal with some flint and steel. To make flint and steel you will need an iron and a flint. Simply place the flint and the iron ingot into your crafting menu in any of the nine crafting spaces and you can start traversing the nether.
Step-3 To light your portal make sure you light one of the inside obsidian blocks, stand in the portal for a few seconds and be ready to face the fiery depths of the nether.
Step-4 Next you will need to locate a nether fortress. These fortresses can be extremely rare, if you are fortunate your portal may generate right on top of one.
Step-5 Once you have located the red/purple hue of the brick you know you have found your fortress! Your next step will be locating the blaze that spawn intermittently throughout the fortress.
A blaze spawner can make your life much easier if you are lucky enough to find one.
Step-6 Simply defeat enough blaze until you have a decent supply of blaze rods. You will need at least one blaze rod to make the brewing stand and any extra can become fuel for the brewing stand itself. Make sure to have extra blaze rods as you will need them to brew the potion of strength.
Run throughout your fortress until you come across a staircase with some soul sand and some red fungus growing. This is the nether wart you will need to brew your strength potion.
After you have collected all your materials, head to safety and back to your crafting table. Using your blaze rod, combine it with three pieces of cobblestone in a crafting table to make a brewing stand.
Step-7 Your brewing stand will need some blaze powder in order to work. Just place a blaze rod into your crafting menu to make blaze powder. Each blaze rod will yield two blaze powder.
Step-8 Right click your brewing stand to open its UI. Place your blaze powder in the top left slot to fuel your brewing stand.
Step-9 Next you will need some glass bottles. Smelt some sand in a furnace to make glass and arrange three pieces of glass in a “v” shape in a crafting menu to make glass bottles.
To learn how to make a furnace refer to this guide. Link
Step-10 With your glass bottles, right click any water source to fill your bottles up and get water bottles. Right click your brewing stand and place the water bottles at the bottom.
Step-11 You are almost done! Place your nether wart in the final slot, wait for the bottles to fill up, and you will have your base for the strength potion: the awkward potion.
Step-12 Leave the awkward potions at the bottom and grab a blaze powder. Place it in the same slot that the nether wart was in. After the bottles have filled up you will have three potions of strength.
Congratulations! Your potions are ready for use.
What does Strength Potion do in Minecraft?
Strength potions will last three minutes. After drinking the potion your attacks will deal an extra heart and a half of damage. This is incredibly useful when fighting boss mobs like the ender dragon or the wither. In bedrock edition the wither has three hundred hearts and having an effect like strength makes the fight much shorter and thus less dangerous.
Note that strength does not affect your bow damage. The strength potion will only benefit your melee weapons like swords or tridents.
