My grand plan was to label all my bottles but I quickly realized that is too much work! I am only going to label the brews I give away. Here are the first 2 labels... nothing fancy. Printed on plain paper with an inkjet printer. Didnt have too much smudging, but a little. Applied with milk.

I'm diggin this! How do you use milk as an adhesive...like paper mache? Does that result in a rotten milk smell over time?

The milk trick is easy. I just dunked a folded paper towel in milk, moistened down each end of the label and stuck it on there! There are a lot of other threads about using milk and it sounds like there is no issue with s smell! Besides, I know these will be consumed within a few days

The QR's link to funny things in Urban Dictionary. Just a fun addition to the label.
