beer label...stuck!

octess:
Hi everyone!
Anybody has some good cues in removing old label from bottles?
Rather kegging, but christmas is coming and bubbling gifts are always much appreciated!
Thanks!

A soak in hot PBW will usually do the trick... if some sticks after the label peels off just scrub with the rough side of the sponge.

I have found pretty good success with this method as well.

Yes, I noticed the glues they use today are not as easy to remove as they used to be. But, now they don't "float off" in the cooler with ice water....

Depends a lot on the brewery also.  Bells, Victory, DFH, labels seem to fly off if you just fart in their general direction.  Blue Mountain, Weyerbacher, need a small thermonuclear device to remove theirs.
