Default How do you "tag" or label your kegs?

I was thinking about buying some "shipping tags" to label my kegs that I'm aging. I thought it would be great to record the specifics of the brew (dates, gravities, etc...). I thought it would also be cool to use as "brew notes" and go back through them from time to time. I saw these on eBay:



Anyone else use these or something else?

There are 50 in this auction, so that should last me a long time!

I use those tags for kegs and carboys. Picked them up in the shipping supplies section at Staples.

I use blue painters tape and a black marker. Keeps it simple and cheap

Same here.

I have some 'labels' for my sanitizer solution and another that says "clean". I like that I can easily transfer these between kegs.

I start by putting a tape label on the fermentation vessel. I can then transfer that tape to the keg.

Same with masking tape. If you number your brews in your brew book, you can simply write the brew number on the tape and save yourself a ton of double-writing.

I use tags - smaller ones I think.
.

Once a keg makes it to my keezer I hang the tag on the faucet shank, just behind the nut. Decidedly low tech, but it works for me...

Cheers!

Sharpie.

If I am lazy I just cross off the last name. If I'm not lazy I wipe it off with a bit of booze or isopropyl alcohol.

I'm lazy and just hope I can remember which is which. If I don't remember correctly, oh well, it's still beer
