I like it! I now have to etch 5 carboys!

I leave the acid on for 45 minutes. It eventually tries. But it etches very evenly this way. I did a couple tries at 10 minutes and some spots didn't come out as well. So 45 minutes worked well on the 2 other carboys I did.

This is genius! I use a label maker to mark the gallons, but this is a huge improvement.

Have you seen these? Quite a bit quicker than etching.

Damn you Bytor! I have enough projects without you adding more.
Way too cool!

Those calibration stickers are cool and I'm sure they're much faster than etching, but the etching just looks so damn cool!

Just did my carboy today, inspired by this thread.

I had to leave the cream on it for 45min.

Can't believe I just saw this, realized I already knew how to do it, and just didn't think of it! I love this place. Goodbye, crappy masking tape level markers, hello new hotness.
