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

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.

You know it, Lou! The color I use is Looking for Action Red.
I need to find time to brew more often.

I think every carboy should have a racing stripe!!
