Read this forum...I am wanting to save Red Stripe bottles too CLR (Calcium Lime Rust) works wonders apparently. It's like $6 at Home Depot for 28 oz.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/silk...emoval-154515/

Has anyone else had any issues with capping these? I don't want to save them all up and then not able to cap them.

HTH,
Lorne

I like the Red Stripe stubbies, but I only have one 12 pack of them. A standard Red Baron capper will cap them just fine, no issues.

I left the labels on. Its the only bottles I own where I did this, but with the odd shape I keep them together at home anyway.

I buy little pouches of chlorinated powder at my LHBS. It's a pink powder. You just mix it with warm water, soak bottles overnight, and it cleans the gunk out of old bottles, and the labels LITERALLY fall right off the bottle as I pull it out of the bucket.

For paper labels I've found OxyClean is the most economic method... not sure what you're paying at your LHBS but a tub of OC is $8 and if you keep it just for de-labeling it will last you years.

I don't expect it works at all for painted on labels. I was wondering how to remove the label from a 22oz Stone bottle... going to try nail polish remover.

I know this is a really old thread but wanted to chime in anyways. Session bottles did not cap properly for me with my Red Barron capper.

I have been saving RS bottles for a few weeks now for my next brew. I have about 24 now. RS bottles however sealed nicely. I'm one day hoping to make a Molson Canadian clone (the only beer my dad truly likes) and give it to him a couple of cases for Chirstmas. I guess its time to test the CLR then.
