Default found a place for FREE bottles!

i just ordered my brewing kit, i haven't even brewed a single batch, but i was excited, and thought i'd go out and see if i could find somewhere to buy some bottles for bottling my first batch. i found out the liquor store TWO BLOCKS from my house is owned by a HB supporter, and he sells a bit of equipment, and ingredients, and promised me pretty much all the FREE bottles i would ever need! thought that was pretty cool, and the best news is, one of the employees there, that will be donating to this, actually takes the labels off of every beer he drinks, and saves the labels, so i don't even have to go thru the trouble of doing that. woo hoo!

Yeah, seriously. Do you have any clue how much I swear at those Saranac bastards when I clean bottles? No idea why, but Saranac labels are friggin' impossible to get off.

I just got 12 cases from the local bar for nothing. I tryed to get them to take the labels off for me, but that didn't fly.

P.S. Beck leabel are the easiest to get off. Warsteiner sucks

Nice score! Make sure to keep the owner in mind when passing brews along to your buddies, so that he keeps helping you out.

The easiest thus far for me have been: Weihenstephaner, Franziskaner, Hoegaarden, Rogue, Schells, Magic Hat, Spaten (green bottles though), Troegs (if left sit long enough).

The worst..in order of decreasing difficulty: Penn, Amstel (somebody saved these things for me and I have no clue how to get the labels off), Stoudt's, Bell's, Brooklyn.

I am seriously tempted to buy some Genesse returnables. I have no clue how the beer tastes, but a fellow homebrewer who moved to kegs just gave me 2 cases of clean returnables. Those things are thick glass! I am betting they'll take Belgian style carbonation. Plus they are 16 oz, and come with the best boxes. I am seriously tempted just to go to those they are so nice.

Or a green scrubbie thing.

Harp, Guiness, and Samuel Smith are the easiest bottles. I soak them in a bucket for five hours and the labels are usually floating in the water when I go back to them. Only problem with Sam Smith is the foil, but you can either leave it or use the green scrubbie and it comes right off.

St Peter's labels are the worst. Rogue ain't easy, they require scrubbing. I don't think the Warsteiner bottles are that bad if you can soak them for a long time.
