That's weird, I stripped 3 cases worth of bottles last night and the Dogfish labels came off so clean that you could slap them on a new bottle and send them back out for sale. I use two scoops of Oxiclean and hot water in the bathtub just high enough to cover the bottles.
I also remembered why I hated stripping bottles, but I'm bottling a whole batch out of a cornie to take to a late holiday party tomorrow.
