I love the milk method. I did eventually get tired of labeling and now just sharpie the caps.

Yeah, the milk really seemed to be the easiest, cheapest and fastest. Plus, they come right off (I'm told) when it comes to re-purposing bottles. Remind me to switch to a rectangular label next time around. Cutting out those ovals was a killer --- but they look great!

A glue stick will also work great for adhering your labels. Just a quick soak and they come right off.

You need to show us a pic of the finished product.

I started with this system. Seems to work, I only have enough bottled at any given time to know exactly what is in there by the batch #, and it disappears when the bottle gets emptied. I'm thinking some "toe tag" style labels for my swing top bottles.

This is a good idea. I usually end up being too worn out after bottling - doing it after dinner after work, and leave the bottles where the stand overnight. Next morning half of them are stuck to the counter or stovetop.
