Removing Labels from Bottles

Used commercial beer bottles are a great source of bottles for your homebrew.  All you have to do is save the non-twist off bottles from your favorite micro-brew or ask your buddies to save theirs for you.  These bottles have labels on them and most homebrewers don’t want someone else’s label on their custom homebrew.  Here’s a simple and easy way to remove the labels.

1.  Put all the bottles upright in a big tub.

2.  Fill them with water and fill the tub with hot water above the level of the bottle labels.  Filling the bottles with water will prevent them from floating around too much.

3.  Let them sit overnight.

4.  Peal off the labels and dry the bottles.
