Bottle Label Glue

My glue recipe for sticking labels onto my home brewed beers.
Keyword: Beer, Glue, Homebrew, Labels



  • 6 Tbsp Water
  • 2 packets Unflavored Gelatin .5 oz
  • 2 Tbsp White Vinegar
  • 2 tsp Glycerine


  • Boil water. Remove from heat and stir in the gelatin until dissolved.
  • Add vinegar and glycerine, stir well.
  • Cool and pour into jar, seal tightly.

To use:

  • Brush the glue onto the back of your paper label and then place the label onto your bottle.


IMPORTANT: Make sure to print your labels on a laser printer. The laser printer will properly fuse the ink to the paper so that it doesn't get ruined once it gets wet in your ice chest.
If you use an inkjet printer, all of your colors will run and it'll look horrible.
