Have you tried this on Red Stripe bottles? How long does it take for the screen printed bottles you have done?

Never tried it on Red Stripe, but it worked in 24 hours on Stone bottles, and took everything but the gold off of Alesmith bottles in the same timeframe.

Jolly Pumpkin Bottles... (similar to the Dogfish bottle posted above. Holds about 25 ounces, same as a belgian cork style bottle, but accepts a regular crown cap)



I also quite like the bottles that North Peak Brewing uses. They are a little more stubby than Red Stripe, and the labels come right off.

+1 on the Sierra Nevada bottles, especially the bombers. The labels fall right off, the bombers are short enough to fit on the top shelf of my fridge at home, and I can stack an extra row of 12oz cases in my fermentation fridge for conditioning.

I have about a case of the champagne style bottles like DFH uses for some of their brews. I use those for special brews that get aged for a long time or when giving beer as a gift.

New Belgium bottles because the labels come off with little to no effort and they're all over the place around here.

Spaten Optimator 1 pint .9 oz bottles look awesome. The foil comes off pretty easy too.

I like Sierra Nevada and Anchor Steam 12oz bottles because there is less head space when using a bottle filler. But obviously bombers kick the crap out of all 12oz bottles.

Favorite Bottle is O'dells, neat design, fairly heavy bottle, and the label comes off well with a couple minutes of soak.
Favorite labels to remove are from Tallgrass brewery (Manhattan, KS). They don't need to soak at all. Run them under hot tap water for about 10 seconds and they peal right off in one piece. Very plain bottle, just like the blanks from the LHBS.
