My brother made it kind of as a joke and could probably make any necessary tweaks if I was super serious about actually using it for real.

Yes, both kids called it that when they were about 3. I could see where, if you didn't have kids, daddy juice would mean something totally different!

Here's a finished Sundowner Cyser bottle. Made the wax using a 2:1 ratio of small glue sticks to broken blue crayons. Turned out really thick and shiny.

So looking for opinions...

I posted this label a few pages ago. I had it printed this morning and will get it on a few bottles tonight (can't wait!)



I'm almost out of the labels with this design - the lower, 3.5 x 3 label and the 3.25'ish wide neck label. I've enjoyed making these, but the neck label always ends up an afterthought, doesn't always fit in with my design, and often becomes a centering nightmare when local businesses try to print these things.

So I'm thinking about getting some 5 x 3 labels for my next batch and trying something different. I really want the extra space on the sides that some of you have used for stories, "warnings", SRM/IBU/ABV info, city/state, etc... There was just never a good place to put that info before, especially if I wanted to really make the most of the main "label". So I designed this today.



I like it, but I'm wondering if the gauge idea is a bit too big. (If I make it too much smaller, you won't be able to read the numbers)

The "ViperDen" is based on the car, not the reptile, so I thought it'd be a cool way of embelishing the "theme".

What do you folks think?

I think the gauges are a really neat idea. I think they really help for non beer geeks who don't know 75 ibus from 75 hogsheads. Couldn't you just keep the font size of the gauges the same and decrease the size of the gauges themselves if you want to make them smaller?

Reason: typo

As usual, you've outdone yourself! My vote is on the larger label, but both are outstanding. Just wondering if you have some inside information - Is that a picture of an up and coming MOPAR product?
