Uhhh, what?

You don't have to clean your bottles? Sanitize each bottle and cap? I think there are several aspects of bottling that you are glazing over and forgetting about...

And quite honestly, maintaining a kegerator is not as much work as you seem to think it is.

I've been pretending I didn't see them and that I'm not dorky enough to get custom bottle caps. It's not working.

I understand one goal of homebrewer's is to make as best brews possible for as little money as possible, But I have to say this is really fun, creative and worth the very little money you spend!
My last batch I bottled everything with badger caps, But you don't have to do that and I do not plan to do that next time.....
I am going to bottle the ones for me with just plain old cheap caps and my flip tops, But if you pride yourself in what you make why not pride yourself in your presentation....

BottleMark.com makes things very easy, You upload your image and it's done, Then they send them out to you!

My idea is to make fun labels for my different brews but always have the badger caps so I'm recognized by the badger logo....

I don't mind bottling. In fact, I just bought a case of beer because I wanted to use the 0.33l swing top bottles, I kinda like them.

I don't mind bottling, its relaxing. However I bottled once while brewing and it was a pita. Never doing that again.

I never sanitize the caps. How much can be on them if you keep them in a ziplock and handle them carefully. They don't touch the beer either.

Yeah, 12 cents each isn't too bad. I loaded up the logo for our business. I think my wife will love it. It would be pretty cool to do a batch with kraft paper labels and custom caps, they'd match the packaging for the products we sell at farmers markets.
