Then add the water bottle to one of the 3 boxes along the bottom. You can make a total of three night vision potions at one time by filling all three bottom boxes with water bottles.

Next, add the nether wart to the box at the top.

Add The First Night Vision Potion Ingredient To The Menu

The potion will begin brewing. You will notice the arrow to the right of the nether wart will begin filling in white to show the progress. When that is done, the nether wart will disappear and an awkward potion will appear.
