really? i found sam adams bottles to be the easiest(winter and boston lager at least) with only a minute or so under hot water and they come right off.

congrats, got my first batch (american wheat)still in the primary and got started with removing some labels today.

My fiancee LOVES Magners Hard Cider and those labels come right off in about 30 minutes of soaking. Magic Hat & Sierra Nevada were horrible.

One bottle I'd say to avoid are Stella Artois, labels come off easy but a standard 2 hand bottle capper doesnt fit right on the neck.

Are you sure your OG was 1.12, that's a pretty big beer for just a kit you bought online. You are looking at a 11% beer when that thing ferments out...did you add somthing else to the it, like more extract

ok its all in the bottles will keep ya posted on christmas eve and new years

how it goes

man bottling alone sucks

good thing I had my grandson (3 1/2) to help me he handed me clean

bottles from the dishwasher and reminded me "don't spill it grandpa"

and when to put the cap on

I must say he made a long process fun
