Re: [BKARTS] labeling homebrew

 I asked my son who is a professional brewer if he had any comment and
he said:

>We use glue that I specially made for beer bottle labels.

>If you want to get the labels off again make sure that the glue is water

>Any kind of paper is good assuming that it can take a certain amount of
>handling ie holding in your hand, ice from a cooler etc before it falls off.

>The paper is made to take an ink and then a fairly high level of humidity.
>Home brew shops often sell labels to put on beer bottles.

He also mentioned postings to the homebrew listserv which mentioned
using milk for the job. It was liked because it was easy to remove and
left no residue.
