True. I hate the extra pounds my bottles have been putting on lately.

Avery Design and Print. Free software download and an app version, too. Simple but it does the job nicely. I’m all Apple - iMac, iPad and iPhone versions.

Default Cider Lables

Hi there Brewers, First post here as I had a go at printing my own Cider lables a few years ago for my first brew and modified for subsequent brews.

They were printed on an HP Laserjet printer on oval lable stock. These have their own sticky backs so I didn't use the milk method that I have only just read about and will certainly try. (see pics below)

One thing I have stuck to is a change of colour for the crown caps each brew year - just in case the lables get detatched. As I do about 100+ pints a year of cider I have been able to cycle the few colours available with out duplication.

This year I have reflected the source of my apples in the name - a cousins orchard provided the goods this year.
