A Zamorak brew is a potion made by using jangerberries on a torstol potion (unf), requiring 78 Herblore, yielding a Zamorak brew(3) and 175 Herblore experience. A dose of Zamorak brew provides a temporary skill boost to Attack equal to 2 + 20% of the player's current Attack level, rounded down, and Strength equal to 2 + 12% of the player's current Strength level, rounded down. It temporarily lowers Defence equal to 2 + 10% of the player's current Defence level, rounded down, and current Hitpoints by 12%, rounded down. 10% of the player's current Prayer level is restored as Prayer points. Used in conjunction with a Saradomin brew, all four skill boost changes will cancel each other out.

Restore potions are frequently used with Zamorak brews to raise lowered Defence. A super strength potion will always boost Strength level higher than a Zamorak brew; however, the Zamorak brew's Attack boost is slightly better than a super attack potion. At levels 85, 86, 90-93, and 95-99, the Zamorak brew will give a boost of 2 levels more than a Super attack potion. You can also use a super strength potion or a dragon battleaxe special attack before you sip a dose to increase your Strength level to the max.

A common use for Zamorak brews is when killing Corporeal Beast, where a dose can be used before fighting and the lowered stats restored with an ornate rejuvenation pool. The brews have a slightly bigger boost to Attack than super combat potions and are cheaper, making them a decent alternative. However, they are rare for general use due to the drawbacks.

Zamorak brews cannot be used with the Lunar spell Boost Potion Share.
