Default Labeling Bottles

Just curious does anyone make there own labels for their homebrews or do you just leave the bottles plain for the ease of cleaning?

I leave mine plain and just write on the cap.

Avery 1" circles for the caps. They can go through the printer with 4 very short lines.

I like that Idea. Do you need a certain print program to do it?

I believe you can use Avery DesignPro for that. It is free. There is also a Mac version as well.

I label 2/3s of them and leave the rest plain with a Dot sticker on the cap.

BTW - use milk to stick labels on the bottles.

For my very first beer I spend a long time designing the labels, printing, and putting them on every bottle.

That was the first and last time I ever made a label.
