I soaked mine in a solution of 1 teaspoon of pink stain remover to 5 litres of water overnight and the labels just slid off the bottle.Doogiechap said:The double bottle filler is a doozy GL. :beerbang: I saw it on your site yesterday as was truely inspired ! :super:
Does anyone have good tips for removing the very stubborn Crown Lager Labels ? I have used solvents, a two week soak in bleach, vegetable peelers, paint strippers. All too painful. I have stripped about 300 of my 500 odd crownies but am inherently lazy. Please no replies pertaining to the use of Kegs
Thank God (or someone) I'm not the only one that does thisspog said:one annoying habit i have with bottling,and am guilty of on many occasions is, capping the beer i am drinking while bottling. you would think i would learn but, nope,not me! <_<

Sounds great BH, but do you reckon it sprays up into the bottles? I agree the heat will probably sanitise prettywell, but I reckon not much would actually go inside them to rinse them.I rinse well after use with hot water from the tap,
on bottling day I chuck all my bottles (PET and grolsch) in the dishwasher on the smallest cycle with no detergent, lids go in the cutlery thing.
This cleans them (they're pretty much clean already) and sanitises them (the heat of the drying cycle is pretty hot, haven't had a bottle related infection so far).
This is the most hands off method I've found, I can go and do whatever and let the dishwasher do the hard yards.
Then when its done I line em all up, put some sugar down the spout, then fill one by one from the fermenter with a bottling valve.
About half an hour I reckon for 23l (+ dishwasher time)
