    Hi,

    John from York, England here. Love this site.
    I've been using the beer label utility which is great does anyone know where I could get self adhesive sheets of the right size to print onto?

    Many thanks

    John

    I just print them onto standard office paper and brush the back with milk. The labels stay on in most situations and come off relatively easily with a soak in warm water. The only time i hit a problem is cooling the bottles in ice and water. They only survive for 10 or so minutes in that.

    The 5 x 4 four to a page work fine. We use lots of them for other stuff, I think we get them off Ebay but they're widely available.

    Also makes it really easy to identify what the beer is when it is sitting in a 6 pack carton or 12 pack carton as you don't have to lift the bottle up to see the label.

    Yes plain paper and brush on some milk, it works great.

    Very similar, but I'm not all fancy pants blue tape. Stock white is good enough for me.
