Hah. Leftover Casserole was a half-batch I made last year to use up what was left of the hops and grain I had sitting around. It came out surprisingly good for something made from whatever was lying around. It had a head that could hold up the bottlecap. I have the recipe at home if you want, I can PM you with it later; nothing extravagant, just an extract brew, but tasty.

Excellent job not letting the "carriage pull the horse". I need to start waiting for the beer to finish out before making labels. Too many times the labels I make don't truly fit whats in the bottle.......

I've always had success on a plain old inkjet, but the final version isn't crisp... and man, it uses a lot of ink.

I did a couple on our work color laser, and they didn't look good; they were very spotty. I then went into the advanced settings and printed them as labels, not as normal paper... bingo! They look fantastic.

Had this label made by brewbrand creative and some tweaking from a friend.

And some custom discharge printed shirts I just ordered
