Anatomy of a Bottle Label
The label can add a lot to your bottle's presentation, as well providing very useful information for you and those you share the brew with.
But what info should you include, and why?
- Twin Towers Brewery – Your Brewery name here. It doesn't have to be a "real" brewery. Come up with a name to bottle your drink under that describes you or your brewing persona.
- Brew Name – A descriptive name for your brew goes here. This gives the drinker an idea of what's coming up!
- "No Sulfites added" / "Sulfites Added" – Include whichever is correct. Sulfites are a health problem for some folks.
- 20% Alcohol – As determined by hydrometer readings. Remove this if you haven't measured it by hydrometer. How to use the hydrometer
- Brew Date – The date the brew started fermeting. Not the date it was bottled. This gives you the true measurement of it's age.
- Type – What type of brew is this? Beer, Mead, Cordial, etc.
- Batch – An identifier that match this with your log notes and other documentation. Helps when folks show you an old bottle and ask for the recipe!
