Yep....works great, and the labels come off easy. Just don't put them in a cooler full of ice and water....you'll have floating labels in no time.

Shut the front door and make/brew/prepare beer the way you like...

Who drinks beer out of the bottle anyways? Do labels really matter? They don't at all, in fact it's a meaningless thread.

I don't think that the label being left on the bottle matters much, and I certainly don't think that its an indicator of laziness.

To use another example, do you only drink your homebrew from an unlabeled glass? If you aren't screening or etching your own glassware, are you being lazy?

This thread should be removed.

The bottles with labels removed are the ones I keep for myself because I took the time and want to keep them. Anything I give away is typically in a painted bottle(rogue etc.) or still has a label. I remove labels when they begin to fall off or when I buy back recycled bottles that need cleaning in Oxi-Clean.

I always remove the labels simply because I want to. I'm gonna give the bottles an Oxyclean soak anyway, so I might as well go ahead and remove the labels. Plus when I move up to kegging I'll have a large stock of label free bottles to sell to new brewers
