Tax Stamps
 
4 Attachment(s)

So i was all set for making these incredible labels after being so inspired by the work people here have done... and then i started removing labels to save bottles for bottling.

Oh h*** no... i've learned that i absolutely, 100% LOATH cleaning bottles.

So i compromised.

My labels are kind of a throwback to Tax Stamps on bottles. Easy to design, easy to print and very easy to get off the bottles. I use three full sheet label stickers to duplicate and print... then cut them all quickly with my wifes hobby straight-line paper cutter board thingy. After capping, i simply wrap them across the top of the cap and down the sides of the neck.

Hope you guys like 'em.

My first brew and only Mr. Beer kit was

My second brew was a partial mash "House Brown Ale" called "Brown House Ale" yeah it was late and had to pick a name.

Third was a modified Stella clone inspired by a friend of mine named Todd... hence "Fleet Street Ale" for Sweeney Todd.

And tomorrow i'll be brewing Cygnus, my first all-grain beer - guiness inspired.
