Just in case anyone gives a S&!%. A long soak in Star San and a scrub will remove the labels from STONE bottles. I only bottle a couple beers per batch so reuse is key. Just my two pennies.

yep, works like a charm, oxy clean is your other friend when it comes to removing labels.

Thanks for sharing; I've always used OxyClean on paper-labeled bottles, but just tossed Stone bottles in the recycling. I'll be sure to try this.

I have not been able to remove rogue paint with either starsan or oxy clean. What is your secret?

What worked for me is just ignoring the paint. It came off by itself after being refilled a few times. So a few soaks in oxyclean and starsan and it starts to come loose. They are kind of a mess when the paint starts to fleck off.

Anyone have a way to get Two Brother's labels off? Dunno what they use, but they are the only ones I can't get off using Oxyclean or Star-san. I've just been recycling them.

I've had success with just a starsan soak and a brillo pad.

I will give it a shot. I haven't been bothered by it too much since I like the graphics on rogue bottles.
