Honey bottles in Minecraft are a great resource for players to have. Much like in the real world, the bees in Minecraft provide a valuable resource in honey that is much to the player's benefit.
Honey is the only drinkable item in the game that can restore hunger and is the only drinkable item that can be stacked with a maximum stack size of up to 16.
Obtaining honey in Minecraft can be a dangerous task
Getting honey without getting stung can sometimes be difficult.
Create honey bottles
Players should first find a beehive or a bee nest with a honey level 5. The way to know if the hive has reached its threshold is by looking for dripping honey. Once you're sure that the beehive or bee nest is ready for harvesting, walk up to the bee nest and use a glass bottle on it. This will fill the bottle and also provoke the bees.
Angering the bees is never a good thing
When a player harvests the beehive or bee nest, they will become angry and attack the player. Players will know they are angry because their eyes will become red and they will begin stinging the player, which does damage and poisons them over time. Players either have to fight the bees or run or place a campfire block underneath the hive to prevent a bee attack.
Players may use a dispenser
If players collect honey from the hive or nest with a dispenser, it will not anger the bees. This can be a good choice because too many bees at once can overwhelm a player if provoked.
If the dispenser harvests honey, the honey bottle will be located inside the dispenser. If the dispenser is full, the honey bottle will be dispensed out of it.
Drinking honey bottles
When a player drinks a honey bottle in Minecraft, it restores six hunger and 1.2 hunger saturation. If the player drinks the honey bottle while under a poison effect, that effect will be removed from the player, which is a great benefit of honey bottles. Drinking a honey bottle takes longer than eating other foods and makes a special sound when players consume it.
Crafting a honey bottle
Honey bottles can be crafted by combining a honey block and four glass bottles. Glass bottles are created using three glasses to make three bottles. Honey blocks can be created by combining four honey bottles, and the empty bottles will remain in the crafting grid. If players wanted to, they could create a house made of honey blocks. Just be careful because honey is very sticky.
Honey bottles can be broken down into sugar
Once the honey is harvested into a honey bottle, it can be crafted into a stack of three sugars per honey bottle. This is useful for players who need sugar to brew or make cakes.
Honey bottles are a unique resource and should be kept on hand
Players can use honey bottles for a wide array of uses. The possibilities are vast, from keeping their hunger up to crafting sugar and honey blocks for this wonderful item. Players should always take care to respect the bees, not only so they don't get stung, but so they can keep on making that delicious honey.
