Why go through all the trouble of using the Rouge or Stone bottles? Why not just get some other great beer and use those bottles?

Does anybody know if the CLR or muratic acid tricks work on the ceramic Rogue bottles?

I do know that CLR works on the cobalt blue Nittany Ale bottles from Midwest Supplies. Immerse for 12 hours in a small coffee can and a scrubby pad will remove the white paint.
I have also diluted the CLR with water. Slow but effective.

wow lacquer thinner didn't work?

Did you try turpentine?

Have you heard of Goof Off? It's crazy strong stuff, just make sure you're outside when using it. I'm pretty sure Home Depot & Lowes carry it (around here they do anyway).

And keep it away from plastics and anything painted that you don't want to remove the paint from.

To each his own, but I wouldn't use any kind of organic or petroleum-related solvent on bottles that were going to hold potables. Muriatic rinses away completely with plain water and doesn't leave a residue. The thought of turpentine or laquer thinner near my beer is a little discomforting.

Don't know anything about Goof Off, but I have used GooGone, which is a citrus-oil cleaner, to remove label glue. You still have to clean the bottles very thoroughly afterwards, or the citrus oil residue will kill any head on your beer, not to mention give it an interesting orange flavor. But at least it's not turpentine

I'd lean toward some kind of mechanical removal, such as a buffing wheel. You can also get Scotchbrite wheels which you can chuck in a drill or possibly mount on a grinder.

but they're both so delicious!! ::

seriously though, I'm pretty sure labels are only on the outside of the bottles. Is someone planning on racking their beer to the outside of the bottles?
Wash em with Oxi-clean (or any good soap/detergent) in hot water after using any nasty solvents on the outside of the bottle and you should be juusst fine [Assuming we're only talking about glass bottles. I def wouldn't use any strong solvents on plastic]

muriatic acid: no
goof off: no

i tried the 1:3 ratio for the acid, no luck, even tried almost pure acid, still no luck. Rogue must finish theirs differently than normal silk screen labels.

i used a wire buffer wheel on a dremel, which worked, but basically ate all the wires off the wheel to take off one label. Decided to leave 'em be, give 'em away when i want to share bottled beer, and don't ask for them back. If you do your own labels, just affix yours on top of theirs. Maybe that will work. I'm interested in the CLR though.

I have removed the silk screened labels on rogue bottles with regular dilution star-san. I just left them in it for 2 weeks. (Which is as far as I know just dilute phosphoric acid a surfactant and maybe other stuff)

Wow, great suggestion!

I love the Stone/Rogue varieties, but have been consuming a LOT of Bear Republic Hop Hod, Racer 5 and Big Bear Black Stout to build the 22oz bottle farm.

Now I know what to do with the 8 Sublimely Self-righteous bottles in the garage... Thanks!

I find it interesting that no one can get starsan to work. I leave my bottles in starsan at room temp for a day sometimes for 48 hours and the labels come right off. Yes, Rogue bottles, Stone bottles, all of the above that are silk screened. I used to live 40 mins from rogue so you can imagine how many bottle I have.
