The instructions say one (included) scoop for four gallons. Doesn't seem soapy enough. For two containers at eight gallons we added three scoops to one and four to the other. No discernable difference. Probably cut back the next time.

If labels weren't an issue we would follow the instruction. If the bottles were rinsed after consuming the wine the solution would be just fine.

I think. Maybe. Last Chem course was in '76. Thank goodness my girlfriend majored in Chemical Engineering.

sounds like a good delabeling process. I wasn’t advocating using PBW to delabel just answering your question. PBW is an excellent solvent of organic residue but it is expensive. Too expensive to use removing labels IMO.

i use WD40 to removed label glue after boiling bottles to sterilize.
