As we need cobblestones for crafting a brewing stand we need to mine them. Cobblestones are available at most of the spots in the game and a player doesn’t need to rind too much for mine cobblestones.

Collecting Blaze rod:

For crafting a brewing stand we also need a blaze rod. Blaze rods can be obtained by killing blazes in the nether. When you attack a blaze it dies and drops a blaze rod you should pick it up and keep it in your inventory before it disappears.
