Paul Reiss from Meadist joins us in Episode 21 to discuss brands, bottles, and label designs. Bottling is the last step to finish your meads. While it may not seem relevant to a site devoted to making mead, it is relevant when it comes to sharing the mead you’ve made with friends. Whether you are a homebrewer or making mead commercially, your brand greatly impacts the experience your customers will have when drinking your mead. Listen in for Paul’s thoughts on what the label and brand say about the mead in your bottle.
