The Artificer in our party has the ritual to brew common potions, but we are trying to figure out what he needs to learn to brew uncommon potions.

Does the ritual specify that it only brews common potions? I'm pretty sure item rarity is something they added after the potion brewing rules had already been published. –  Oblivious Sage Aug 18 '12 at 0:33
@ObliviousSage brew potion does indeed dictate common. –  wax eagle Aug 18 '12 at 0:51
@waxeagle Was that only after an errata? –  user2525 Aug 18 '12 at 4:40
@user2525 yes that is errata from 11/17/10 –  wax eagle Aug 18 '12 at 7:36

Typically uncommon items are only found, not created or purchased.

However, this does not preclude you (or whoever the DM is) from providing the player with the brew potion recipe with the recipe he would need to brew an uncommon potion (although the ingredients could potentially be harder to find, more expensive than the potion).

Much like many DMs allow for the purchase of uncommon items under special circumstances, this would allow for the creation of uncommon potions when the circumstances were right for allowing for it.
