What color looks best on a carboy ? A nice Berry Frost, or maybe a Sinful Pink ? Reckon the pink would stand out better, huh?

More like a sock monkey, really...

I shouldn't be this complicated!

Just mark it with a sharpie and laminate it with some packing tape. This is what I have done and it has not faded.
