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.
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?
