To craft a Splash Potion of Weakness, you will need to have the following ingredients:

  • 1 Blaze Powder - These are crafted via Blaze Rods from the Blaze mob, which you can find in The Nether at a Nether Fortress. If you find it difficult to search for a Blaze, you can create your own Blaze Farm.
  • 1 Fermented Spider Eye - You'll need three items to craft one Fermented Spider Eye as listed below:
    • You will first need a Spider Eye, which you can obtain from slaying spiders.
    • A Brown Mushroom can generally be found in dark areas, the nether, or alternatively, you can sheer them from a brown mooshrom. They spawn frequently in swamp, giant tree taiga, and mushroom field biomes.
    • Sugar, which you can get from a Sugar Cane or Honey Bottle. You can also use the compound creator with a combination of six Carbon, six Oxygen, and twelve Hydrogen.
  • 1 Gunpowder - You can farm Gunpowders by slaying Creepers, Ghasts, and Witches or trading via Wandering Traders.
  • 3 Water Bottles - You can craft Water Bottles using a Glass Bottle and water. For Glass Bottles, you'll need to craft them with Glass blocks.

After acquiring all the materials, you would need to craft yourself a Brewing Stand.

How to craft a Brewing Stand

The fastest and most efficient way to craft a Brewing Stand in Minecraft is to use cobblestone as your primary material and a Blaze Rod.

You need to place the three cobblestone blocks to fill an entire row in the crafting section and place the Blaze Rod above the middle cobblestone, as shown in the photo above.

Step-by-step process of brewing Splash Potion of Weakness

Step 1: Use Blaze Powder

Place one Blaze Powder in the top left box of the Brewing Stand. This will serve as the fuel of the Brewing Stand. You will notice that the bar next to the middle section of the stand will fill up with golden yellow. This will slowly reduce as you create more potions.

Step 2: Place the Water Bottles and Fermented Spider Eye

Now, place the three water bottles in the bottom squares of the Brewing Stand. Once you have them placed, you can add the Fermented Spider Eye to the top middle square to start the potion creation process.

This will take a bit of time to complete; you can watch the progress of the arrow on the right as it fills up with white. Once that has reached the bottom, you will have three Potions of Weakness.

Step 3: Place the Gunpowder

To turn the potions of weakness into Splash Potions of Weakness, you will need to add a gunpowder. Place a single gunpowder into the top middle box and wait for it to brew. Once completed, you will have three Splash Potions of Weakness.

Once you have your Splash Potions of Weakness, find a Zombie Villager and hurl the potion at them. Once they are under the effect of the weakness, you will then need to run up and give them a Golden Apple. You have about one minute and seven seconds (1 minute and 7 seconds) to feed them with the Golden Apple. Otherwise, you would need to throw another Splash Potion of Weakness.

You will hear a loud noise like thunder, and the Zombie will start to shake. It will take about two to five minutes before the Zombie Villager is cured.
