Default De-labeling bottles

Really sucks.....


Luckily I have a Case of Dog Fish Head 90 min IPA to make it all better.

My first brew is going in the bottles in t-minus 25 clean bottles

wish me luck!!

Oxyclean is your friend for label removal. Soak the bottles for a few hours in some oxyclean and hot water and they float to the surface!

I will have to give that a try next time. I tried to use goo-gone and it just made everything in my kitchen stink like gasoline and oranges.

+1 on oxyclean- works great for labels, any any gunk in the bottle.

My solution: drink Blue Moon. I can get those labels off with just a scrubber sponge. Also delabeling bottles as you drink them is no less work in the long run, but seems easier as it's divided over time.

In case you need any more convincing. OxyClean OxyClean OxyClean. Hot Water + 30 minutes OR Cold Water + Overnight = Success.

An overnight soak is magical!

Oxyclean Free for labels

StarSan for Stone's painted labels

Does the StarSan work with Rogue's painted labels as well?

+4 on the Oxyclean. I do 4 day soaks (I am away from home then) and they just fall off. A light scrubbing with a sponge gets off the last gunky bits.

Only label that does not seem to come off is the Amstel Light. But who drinks that anyway???

I thought Blue Moon bottles were twist offs. Am I mistaken?
