Once you have the right ingredients you can begin to brew Polyjuice Potion. Some of the ingredients you require may be hard to find so you will need to be resourceful and eagle-eyed. The instructions have been split into two stages and you will have to complete stage one of the brewing process before you can move on to the second stage, even if you have all of the ingredients.

Take care and persevere, this is a complicated and challenging potion that even adult witches and wizards struggle to brew correctly.

Discovered in Book 2, Chapter 10, The Rogue Bludger

"Polyjuice Potion has the power to transform the drinker into somebody else. The recipe can be found in Moste Potente Potions, which is housed in the Restricted Section of the Hogwarts library. It is a very complicated potion and requires ingredients such as lacewing flies, leeches, fluxweed, knotgrass, powdered horn of a Bicorn and shredded skin of a Boomslang as well as a bit of whoever the drinker intends to turn into. Harry, Ron and Hermione want to take the potion so that they can turn into Slytherins and find out if Draco Malfoy is the heir of Slytherin, as they suspect. "

Trivia

  • Polyjuice Potion Parts 1 and 2 are two separate potions, therefore Part 1 isn't lost even if you mess up Part 2
  • Part 1 doesn't disappear from brewed potion index after completing Part 2, so you can have one Part 1 and multiple Parts 2
  • Lacewings bottle is very difficult to navigate, so it's a common practice to knock it over the table and catch individual scoops as they fall out of the bottle
  • You have roughly 7-9 hours to check on the Part 2 after it's brewed before it spoiled.
