Some days it feels like some bastard at the local craft brewery has said,
"Hey James let's get the most gnarly and sticky glue ever invented and use it with our bottles. And while we're add it, let's at a second layer of the world's second strongest glue. Just to be sure"
At least that's how it feels.
Now I've bitched about this before but I recently came across the best way to remove labels from beer bottles.
Use the dishwasher to remove sticky beer labels!
Just run them through a cycle in your dishwasher and that glue becomes unstuck.
The labels can then be easily peeled off in one satisfying motion.
Here's the proof.
I have pair of Panhead and Garage Project bottles prior to going into the dishwasher:
And here's the after photo removal of the Garage Project Bright Side:
And here we have the shot of the Panhead Culture Vulture fresh out of the dishwasher and the too easy removal:
So that's that.
Probably the easiest tip you'll come across for when getting your bottles ready for bottling. Remember, you will still need to sanitise your bottles before filling them with glorious beer.
