Me with my last batch o'Heiny

Fack it. Too much werk. Tried it once. Never more. Just use brown anyways. Plus, I prolly have enough bottles for 6 batches anywho.

Primary: McRed Irish Tail
Conditioning in bottle: Zip
Finished and drinking
: Red Tail clone - back to basics time
Up next: Red's Irish cousin
Then: Who knows

New motto (T'anks, Newguy!)
"for the love of all that is good and holy...NEVER DUMP YOUR BEER!!"

I didn't think it was difficult at all. Actually easier than scrubbing off the paper residue some bottles leave behind.

BTW, I use green and clear bottles for cider and save the brown ones for beer.

Yeah, I like the heat-gun idea, too. Although I have a powerful heat-gun, I wonder if a common hair-dryer would work as well?
