My wife is wondering what is so dang funny right now.

Maybe that's where my 9th grade math teacher got his saying above the blackboard-"do your own thing,but don't stop me from doing mine".

A lot of the bottles i can get cheaply are 22's that are misprints, but they are bottles where the label is printed onto the bottle itself with glue or epoxy or whatever whatever it is they use..and it never comes off.

Wow, am I ever disgusted with this thread. It's like listening to people discuss politics, vote this guy vote that guy, labels, no labels.

Shut the front door and make/brew/prepare beer the way you like...

Who drinks beer out of the bottle anyways? Do labels really matter? They don't at all, in fact it's a meaningless thread.

For a long time I was making my own labels using printable shipping labels. Now I've come to realize that the adhesive on those was forged in the fires of Mount Doom and it's a huge pain in the ass to remove those. So the last couple batches I've been a little lazy with removing those, but I actually just spent the weekend removing the labels from all my empties, so that's actually a relief. I've since started printing labels on glossy laser jet paper and using milk to affix them. These labels come off after 2 minutes of soaking, so that's my plan from now on.

I de-label mine just because i use my dishwasher to wash them before I star-san and bottle. I have fisher-paykel dish drawers and keep the bottom one free of jet dry just so I can use it for bottles. I have a pretty good supply of de-labeled bottles now, so I only do a case or so every two months just to make up for ones that weren't returned.
