A video I made today showing milk as an adhesive while labeling. We've used this on a few batches in the past and it's worked very well. The labels stay on in most every case and come off almost immediately in water.

Hope the link works.

I have heard a few people who do this, I get my label paper already pre gummed so I just print, cut and dampen.

When I bottled my beer I used 2% milk to stick on my labels. I started doing that 15 years ago.

I have used milk many times - either whole, 2% or skimmed: it all seems to work.

I use a standard glue stick to attach mine. They also come off easily with warm water. Anyone have experience with both and have a preference?
