I've seen some people have success using glass etching acid that you can get from a craft store.

I browsed across this post a couple of days ago and I really like the idea you have kewlio. So, naturally, the only reasonable thing is to go buy a six pack of the same and give it a shot.

I skipped right past using StarSan or bleach or OxyClean. A simple razor blade is all it takes. I used a square razor blade (a boxcutter blade would work just as well) and it took me all of three minutes to get a label clean off. It comes off as a powder and makes a little mess so I suggest doing it over newspaper or something. It's like scratching a lottery ticket....

After that all it took was a rinse in the sink with dish soap and it is good as new. BONUS: The razor will also work on the date/tracking info on the neck of the bottle.

Good luck I don't know how many 'a ton' is, but my six pack won't take longer than twenty minutes. I'll post a pic of the bottle when I get home.

P.S. I checked, and a regular crown cap does fit on and works with my usual capper.
That beer tasted like another....

Just remember to keep the bottles out of the light or your going to have skunked beer
