What do you use, software and attaching to bottles, for your labels?

GIMP to create the label and a regular glue stick to paste to the bottle. Printed out on a laser printer with standard paper.

Label comes off super easy in a hot water bath.

I just use the 3/4 round "rummage sale" labels printed from Open Office. I include the name and bottling date on the label. My spreadsheet brew log has both dates.

My labels are simple Avery 8162 labels (1 1/3" x 4"). I include beer name and/or style, batch number, brew date, bottle date, OG, IBU's, and ABV. Its nothing fancy but lets me keep track of and organize my inventory.

The only thing on my bottles is an abbreviation of beer type and the date it was bottled.

Everthing is also recorded in beersmith including tasting notes, thoughts screwups etc.
