I want to do a nice lable for my current batch. What do you recommend gluing the labels on with that will be easy to remove for the next batch? Any ideas?

I use an ordinary glue stick - the labels wash right off in warm water.

Of course, if you drop the bottles in a cooler and they get wet, the labels tend to come off prematurely - so I always put a little round sticky label on the cap so nothing ends up unidentifiable.

Both the glue stick and the 3/4" round labels are available at any office supply.

The good ole midwest!
I've heard you can float the label on a bowl of milk and then smooth it on the bottle, but I've not tried it. The label will come off easily for your next batch, but I don't know if it will stick well enough for your current batch.
