I'm definitely stealing this idea for my growler... sweet.

Now the question is, how will it hold up to the Oxyclean/StarSan solutions we often subject bottles to?

Hard to say so far. It isn't really dry yet. I didn't scuff the bottles at all, either. I've set them aside and on sunday night I'll throw them through the dishwasher on high heat a few cycles. I rinse my bottles after pouring and use the dishwasher sanitizer cycle before bottling, so minimal chemicals to worry about. The sani cycle prob will do more damage.

I would be concerned about the condensation erasing your chalk but let us know how it works

The paint scratches off very easily. No way it'll hold up.

I'm going to take some bottles and media blast them to see if the paint stays better. Might be a week before we're done.

I scuffed them up with sand paper and the chalkboard paint sticks pretty well. Though, I don't plan on putting them in the sanitize cycle with my regular bottles. These will get a star-san treatment instead. I am only going to write on the bottles when I go to my brew club meetings...its really just all about the look IMO.
