Anybody have any feedback on taste comparison?
Specifically, has anyone bottled from the same batch in glass and aluminum, aged for a while and tasted both? Notice any difference?

btw, I thought the plain sanded bottle looks pretty cool. It does seem like a lot of work though to get the "label" off.

No impact...and not surprised at that. Think about it...if they impacted the flavor of Bud Light even the slightest bit, AB wouldn't be able to get away with using them.

Mountain Dew is bottling in these in Colorado now....I don't want to keep their labels...I have seen some sort of metal cleaner at the parts store that had a Dr. Pepper can that they had removed 1/2 of the paint from the can...So I'm stopping by on my way home tonight to see what they have.

Try lye. It will remove anodized coatings from aluminum. I bet it works almost as well at removing the label ink/etch from these.

has anyone tried to starsan the ink off of these yet? i use a double starsan solution to remove the ink off of corona bottles and it works wonders. could it work on these or would the starsan mess up the aluminum or the coating on the inside?

Default Starsan

Anybody found something that will clean the ink off the outside yet? I would be tempted to have a party and have all the guests decorate one and sign it and then keep it of course. Something like these in OKC.

Not somuch interested in using the aluminum bottles myself, but if I follow what you're saying here, that a double strength solution of starsan will remove the screen-print from glass bottles?

I have a bunch of Arrogant Bastard bombers I would consider using for bottling sometime (I rarely bottle now that I keg, but thats another story), but I prefer a blank brown bottle.

Might need to give this a try... Anyone ever tried this on the Stone bottles?
