22 fl oz bottles cost me 95 cents a piece (case price).
12 fl oz bottles cost me 55 cents a piece (case price).
To me that means buy a 6-pack of 12 oz bottles and figure
you're paying $3.10 for the bottles. Makes it easier to
sell to my childbride. ;)
Yes it is rather simple to take labels off of bottles.
At least most of them. Unfortunately some breweries,
e.g., Stone Brewing in Kal-e-forn-ya and Yingling in
Pencil-vane-e-a, use labels I have yet to be able to
You need to see one of these bottles up close to
understand the problem. Has anyone found a way to
remove these labels?
I still have a bunch of bottles free for the taking.... 5 or 6 cases with
the labels removed already.
When I was cleaning bottles, I'd fill up the sanitary sink with bottles and
hot water and put in a couple scoops of oxyclean. The next morning, the
labels would either already be off or they would slide off. Sometimes the
glue residue would require a little scrubbing with a wire pad (those
scrubbie things). Oxy worked like a charm.
Seriously though, come and get a bunch of clean ones. I'll throw in a bench

1) Home Repair issue? : )
2) Assume you're gonna brew! Been there; loved it!
3) I assume your problem bottles have the labels attached with that nasty
gummy water proof glue.
4) What I did was scrape the bulk of the crap off with a knife so the
chemicals have less to dissolve. I use Goo Gone. I scraped 6 bottles at a
time. Then placed a piece of cloth (wash cloth works well) on the first
bottle and saturate it with Goo Gone. After a few minutes I rub the glue off
and place the cloth on the second bottle (adding no additional Goo Gone).
By about the 6th bottle the solvent is exhausted. Hard work but you only
have to do it once in the life of the bottle. BTW, I never had a problem
getting bottles donated by my beer-drinking buddies : )
Best of luck

You mean Yuengling? Hell I bought a case of their Lager and the damn
lables about fell off.
I have a friend who brews and he always soaked the lables that wouldn't
come off easily in Murphy's oil soap water overnight.

I dont know what this has to do with home repair, but I have a gripe
about those plastic beer bottles they use now a days. In the old days
during a barroom brawl, you'd bust a glass bottle on some guys head
and he would often stop fighting or pass out. Try that with one of
these plastic bottles and the guy will laugh at you, then knock you
