    Lame-o first run at a label

    Simple, yet complex. The problem I find when doing circles is, how do you, as a homebrewer, cut out the label to put on the bottle? That's where I find squared, rectangles, and diamonds a much easier design to work with. Making a really nice label, then having to delicately cut with scissors...

    Short Snout Brewing Logo - Feedback

    Hilarious. Glad the eyes are serving their purpose! I dont think I fully understand what you're saying. But as far as the dogs heads as the Os, I don't really like that idea because when printed, the label is small and the detail in the dogs heads would be very minimal. Also the spacing...

    Circles are tricky as Ive said. So my problem is trying to make two objects "fit" into an object with one center...the circle. I could put a BOTTOM "circle" with the other pug. Wonder how that would look...... Oh and what about the pugs eyes? I think I altered his look a little too much to...

    What can I say.... I saw potential in what you had there and just wanted to tinker. Again, I knew it was a prototype, but I didnt want you to leave it where it was if something better could be had. Oh, umm...got any ideas/input with what I've done so far?

    Okay, more tinkering. I think I'm done for the night. Really just doing this for fun and experience. No vision really...just tinkering when it all comes down to it.

    New Logo

    If you want me to tinker, then damnit....promise me if I frame your circular elements in a square/rectangle/diamond, you won't get upset. :) Oh, and although not a big fan of the elements, I have an idea for something completely different. Although I'm not an illustrator, I still might be...

    Short Snout Brewing Logo - Feedback

    Okay, if I was at all unclear about my idea, here is a not-so-quick edit of the original. Didn't want to deviate much from the original, so I tried to keep many of the same elements but updated some stuff. - Worked in a bottle cap silhouette instead of just a plain circle - Different Font...

    Black Mamba

    Sure... Blame it on the apfelwein. Had this label been in your lap at that very moment, you know you would have made sweet sweet love to it. ;)

    I like the concept, but it feels very quick draft/prototype. It very well may be, but IMHO, the biggest improvemt could come by repositioning the text. It in no way feels "right". The "brewery" text feels like it is very out of place. Working with circles and text can be tricky. I suggest...

    Fantastic eh? Wow, thanks.... Oh, and it was all photoshop. Damn raster graphics. Wish I had illustrator experience. I was done at high resolution, so it will print nice and crisp, but nothing beats the old vector graphic.

    Did some tweaking... Dunno if I like the results. Hard to make a mean looking eye when you have so many nuances that cause posture and facial expression...

    Black Mamba

    Thanks... Actually I plan to get them printed professionally being it's so cheap from MPIX. And their Metallic Paper option looks f***in awesome. Loud is definitely going for... I hear blackbeery wine is sharp, and when I made it before, I was expecting high alcohol... And def did dump...

    Edwort's Apfelwein

    Looks nice and simple, though do agree that when printed, it may be quite hard to read with that font. try to bold the font, and or select a different one with a little more meat. And that "diamond" looks out of place. Wouldn't change anything to remove it. A little color to the leaved would...

    Here is a design I made about 2 years ago. Had 6 gallons that turned to vinegar.. :mad: BUT, have another 4 gallons going now, and I'm a bit more educated..... Cant wait to actually use it.

    Pitch a starter after 10 days??

    So let me get this straight.... 10 days and no signs of fermentation? That's scary.... If you now see signs of fermentation, I'd say leave it be. I'm new to this and all, so I'd wait for a response from someone with experience. Though, in 10 days while you're waiting for yeast to grow in...

    Hahahaha. Great response. Just great.... :D

    New Marketing or Feminine Beer

    So what's the deal with it not being able to ferment wort? I can only guess that the potential reason would be the acidity of the wort. It definitely does ferment sugar into alcohol (and acetyldehyde.) (see this: 4th paragraph, 1st sentence) Yes, people would find it disgusting, and the FDA...

    New Marketing or Feminine Beer

    DISCLAIMER: What you're about to read may be disturbing, disgusting, and downright demented. So please, enjoy it while it lasts. ;) Okay, so I'm new to brewing (anything) so I have little experience with the types of flavor and character imparted (by the yeast) on all the different brews we...

    Grass

    Nah, just havin fun. Don't do that stuff anymore. I think it's what made me this way to begin with. ;) Ha! And I bet the army worm wine tastes like worms. My buddy loves the smell of fresh cut grass for some crazy reason. Figured he would fall all over himself if I actually fermented it...
