Media blasting?? Or (as it sounds like benzy4010 would enjoy more) cordite/C4/primer-cord blasting...

I am sorry about this. I never did like Heinekin. Every one I had was skunked.

Soak them in an Oxyclean bath over night.....labels will slide right off...then scrub the glue in same oxyclean...and rinse rinse rinse....alot....

Also, no experience myself with this....but everything I have read and heard recommends amber bottles.....to prevent sunlight from turning your beer skunky......all I have ever used is the dark amber bottles myself for this reason and also because most of the commercial beers i drink are in amber bottles anyway.

ANy thoughts or experience from anyone else on use of green bottles?

I tried oxyclean but only for an ge. I will try longer. I have 10 heinekin bottles and the rest are Sam Adams bottles. I will drink the heinekin bottles first so skunking will not be an issue.

If you have to use green or clear bottles, just make sure they get as little exposure to any light as possible.

Unless of course you want them to taste like Heinekin/Corona/Moosehead. I personally kinda like the skunky taste sometimes....
