getting back into homebrewing after many years.. and wondering if anyone has any special hints or tricks to easily removing labels from bottles, im all ears the easier the better cause i got 48 to do in the next few days. i used to do the obvious and soak em water, but that was back when there was no internet and i didnt have 1000's of homebrewers all in one place that I could ask

I use hot soapy water with ammonia and let them soak for a few hours, works like a charm.

A soak in a solution of PBW will take care of the most stubborn labels in no time.

Careful now...suggesting folks look up commonly asked questions before asking them again and again can get you slapped down here. I've been slapped a couple of times pointing that out.
