Ingredients have a wide range of effects, most of which develop the type of potion, with a few ingredients that specify the potion.
Bases are key ingredients that typically start of the brewing process. Bases are the first ingredient added. The most commonly used base is the Nether Wart as it trails-off to the largest range of possible potions.
Secondary ingredients are the ingredients that determine the type of potion (in other words, the effect).
Converters describe the aspects of the current potion. It can alter length-of-effect, positivity, or use.
The following effects only apply to the regular potion without any duration or potency extents.
