Nice... Missed that

Now I have to get a heat gun. Wonder if that will work for Amstel and other plastic labels.

Stella bottles are a pain the the ars. Anyone know if you can cap a stella bottle with a wing capper? The bottle's shape at the neck looks like it might be a problem.

Yeah, you can definitely use a wing capper on Stellas; I just bottled cider into about 20 of them last night. It's a little fiddly to get the capper set correctly, but it works. Also, running the bottles through the dishwasher helped most of the labels come right off, no sweat.

Presidente bottles are very easy to clean just 10 minutes in oxyclean and the labels come off with no residue.

You know, I didn't really mind the stuff when I had it in bottles when it came out, but on tap last weekend, it was really disappointing. Maybe it was the Blue Point Toasted Lager I had first, but the American Ale just didn't taste like anything.

The bottles are really nice, though. Nicer than Sam, even, and the labels do come off just as easily. My favorite bottles are Sierra Nevada, though. I like the stubbies, and the labels just float right off, although they leave a little glue for scrubbing.

I have to go with Sam Adams here. They have always been the easiest for me.
