I made a biere de garde recently (currently "garding"). I plan to keg most of it. I was wondering if I could bottle condition some of it using brett. Has anyone done so? Caveats? Brew on!

Date: Tue, 7 Dec 2010 12:24:55 -0500 From: "Doug Moyer" <shyzaboy at yahoo.com> Subject: Removing Sierra Nevada labels I've consumed a powerful amount of Sierra Nevada Celebration and Torpedo, leaving me with lots of bottles. Being the generous and helpful chap that I (sometimes) am, I would like to remove the labels and give the bottles to some of the new brewers in our club. (I keg...) I've never encountered such an evil glue as is used by SN. The labels come off with a bit of a soak, but they leave behind a thick layer of glue that takes a lot of elbow grease and hot cleaning solution to remove (and heaven forbid if you allow some of those glue clumps to cool off on the bottle - or worse, IN the bottle - that's a bottle for the recycling bin at that point). I've been using Straight A. Soaking in Straight A solution causes the labels to float off but the glue residue still needs to be carefully scrubbed (and sometimes there is still a faint marking where the glue was - even after running the bottles through the dishwasher). Any ideas? (And, please, SN-specific. I know it is MUCH easier to get the labels off of MOST other brands...) Brew on!
