Last night was bottle cleaning day. I soaked the bottles in baking soda and warm water for a few hours and the labels just fall right off. It is so much easier than trying to scrape them off right away. Now I have around 50 bottles ready to be sanitized and used to bottle. Devil’s backbone labels take a bit more effort to get off, Sam Adams labels come off fairly easily after soaked, but Miller labels fall off with out any peeling or scrubbing.
