Took a tour of bridgeport in Portland and got to visit the hop room and had us roll the hops in our hands and smell them, was cool....LOVE the smell of cascade.

I like the label, I used the same one to take some pictures of my Gingerbread Brown. Did you use milk to adhere it to the bottle?
Thanks man! It is still a little cloudy, but it was only in the fridge for a couple hours. Hopefully it well clear up more in the next week. As for the labels, I did use milk to adhere them to the bottle.

No problem, the recipes on here are awesome, especially when there are 25+ pages of feedback. Mines been really tasty out of the primary samples, I'm itching to get it into bottles in about a week.

I tried wetting the back of my label, printed on regular paper, with some skim milk. It stayed on for a bit, but eventually fell off.

I used normal printing paper. I brushed on a thin layer of milk on the bottle and then laid the label on top of the milk. The milk creates a nice layer on the bottle.
