Mineral spirits, turpentine, lacquer thinner, and goof off(or something like that) all had no effect. At this point, I'm becoming ok with having 7 bottles with RS labels on them!

I like the RS beer and we buy a sixer every now and then. I havent ever tried to get the lable off. I do soak them a bit but it hasn't even started to remove the paint.
I did have a slightly harder time to cap them with my wing capper, but not too bad. I might have lost two caps in the process. I do know that RS bottles will not fit in a regular six pack holder. Get too tight.

Hey Revvy did you let the starsan dry on the bottles? I did this with Corona and the paint flaked off but if i tryed to wipe off while wet it wouldn't touch it.

Mineral OIL is food grade and a natural laxative....Mineral spirits is not safe to ingest.

Those would look cool. I tried to get the paint off last year with just soap and some elbow grease. It didn't work, and I think my arm is still tired.

Can you get session lager where you are? Same shape bottles without the painted on stuff and pretty good.

If you are all about stubby bottles get some full sail session bottles. They have paper labels.

It's the box in the middle under the other bottles.
