RJ rockers (sc microbrewery) has the worst labels! too bad the beer is so good i.e. drink alot of it. Plasticy labels with major glue residue that stays sticky. the residue is so bad I've decided to chuck them! Will try ammonia but I'm not holding my breath on getting these evil things off.
OxyClean!?!? I love that stuff and now I have a new use for it. Personally, Saranac labels have been my worst enemy the last few weeks. The Oktoberfest labels floated off in about ten minutes in ammonia but the rest have been a bit more persistent. I'll have to give the OC a try...
I just used Oxyclean for the first time tonight to de-label 170 bottles. Man that stuff works great! Except for the Rogue bottles theat needed a little bit of persuasion (just grabbed a label floating in the tub and scrubbed off the last of the Rogue glue) it was as easy as it gets. I now have a bunch of bottles waiting to be filled with delicious yeast-blessed goodness. Thanks for the tip, all.

tried oxyclean, worked well labels floated with a short soak in a cooler, except for the RJ Rockers. It did however get the glue residue off of the RJ Rockers labels I was able to peel off before soaking... pretty amazing. I'm an oxyclean convert!
