That ring you might see is not visible to the naked eye, but for some reason, the flash and lighting must have accentuated it. The pic does definitely show that the ink is safe even after capping.

I'm more than happy to contribute to the community. I figure I could give back in exchange for all the helpful things I've learned on HBT. I'd love to see anyone else's posted here if they are successful.

This is a great idea, I may only do it for the few beers I give out now and then (most people just come to my house) for flare. Thanks for doing all of the hard work.
