Default I found the easiest by far way to remove labels

A little warm water, a scoop of oxyclean and one of these. A 5 year old who loves "helping daddy make beer".

this is just like all those builds that assume you have a spare a/c unit laying around or your buddy has a machine shop. If you have a spare 5 year old laying around yeah youre saving some effort, but if you have to have to conceave, deal with a preggo SWMBO, raise the kid I dont see any effort being saved

Ya... but think about de-labeling bottles and you can rationalize all that very quickly

Conceiving him was no issue ;-)

That said, like my messiah Alton Brown rails against single purpose items. This boy is very versatile. He holds spoons, he spritzes sanitizer, he fetches past brews from the fridge. I'm telling you. You have got to get one of these.

My particular model Ryan 5.0 is not for sale, but I hear you can DIY pretty easily

I know I have a couple boxes of bottles that need de-labeling in the garage that I was going to do over spring break but that didnt happen, and you do at least get laid in the process. But I could just buy a kegging set up for what the diapers to get the kid to that point would cost.

You have a few bottles in there that I wouldn't be able to cap with my capper. Could you get a Ryan 5.0 that would separate those out?

SOOOO true, my son just turned one and has yet to offer a helping hand around the kitchen on brew day, how selfish. Although i'm very happy your is trained appropriately.

I think child labor is a great idea. There's no reason why we can't teach them multiplication at the same time we employ their tiny fingers for laborious tasks.
