One thing I just learned about using milk as an adhesive: It doesn't work on new PET bottles. All the labels were sticking real well last night when they were still a little damp but this morning they had all fallen off. The bottle must be too smooth for it to work. I don't normally label but these were a Christmas present for my old man. Lol, I like the simple look anyways!

Have you tried milk, in either a garden spray, or one of the small sprey bottles from the drug-store (the ones that are ment to take small ammounts of cosmentics on vacation in)?

This thread's over two years old. I think he's figured it out by now.

Thanks for bumping the thread anyway, I was wondering exactly how to use milk to stick on the labels.

Hey, you've got a natural spray bottle right there (eeeew)

But back on topic, the milk idea is great. I don't care if the bottles I drink are labeled. However if I'm giving some to a buddy then I just take them out of my conditioning cabinet, milk up some labels and slap 'em on. I like the extra pizzaz ^_^

So last week I labeled a bunch of bottles using the milk method and this weekend SWMBO went out into the garage and complained that something must have died in there. I found the culprit, my beer labels done with milk. It was bad to the point where I removed them all and had to air out the garage for the better part of the day. Anyone else ever have this happen? I think I may have used too much milk or something.

I stuck a few on with milk and never had any smell issues, could you have spilled milk in the box you had the beers in or something like that?

Also anyone find what paper to use with an inkjet printer so the ink doesn't bleed?

If you're dead set on using milk, some rehydrated skim milk powder would probably work well... it would definitely be more sterile than fresh milk, pasteurized or no.

This stuff looks interesting...
