Subject:Looking for help about Mjöðr

Hi,

A friend of mine is brewing Mead, and of course Old Norse and generally ancient Germanic culture and symbolism comes to his mind when he wants to design a logo and etc.

I did tell him that the Old Norse word for mead is mjöðr, but I am not sure about how was it supposed to be written in runes. I know that the Anglo Saxon version (medu) would be ᛗᛖᛞᚢ, and my guess for ON is ᛗᛃᛟᚦᛉ (mjoþR).

Is this the correct way to spell it with runes?
Is using just the Mannaz rune enough to symbolize Mead (I know the meaning of the rune name itself has nothing to do with any kind of alcohol), or perhaps there is another old symbol that was used?

Thanks for the help,
Boris aka Nomæd.
