Update


So I took a reds apple ale bottle removed the stickers with a razor blade and then used some goo gone to remove the residue from the glue.

I then boiled the glass.


Then using these 3 supplies I cut the glass.

Rubbing alcohol
String
Lighter

And a sink or bucket filled with ice cold water.

I then soaked the string in rubbing alcohol and them wrapped it around the bottle 3 times and then tied it odd and cut off excess string . Then holding the bottle horizontally i lit the string. And I slowley rotated the bottle untill the flame went out then dropped it into an ice cold bucket!

And then it snapped into 3 pieces " was supposed to be 2. But the part where the string was broke off separate from the top and bottom of the glass.

I then took the bottle neck and sanded where it was cut and now its smooth enough to run my finger across.

And now the glass top is in a pot on boil.



I will upload pictures of my finished bottle neck volcano later .

All them beers are painted/etched into the glass. That's why the stay on. It's not glue/peel type labels.

Jäger and dr. pepper's got me good a few years ago, don't think I've had any since. And I've had homemade apple pie moonshine - the lady I worked for at a renaissance fest made some and brought it in and we were sipping on it all day while helping people try on corsets. That stuff was awesome.

That volcano looks pretty cool! Might have looked cooler with a colored bottle though. Going to make more of them?

I know I'm not the greatest hobbiest of all times. But I highly doubt if you rinse out a beer bottle of pint bottle good it will harm your fish. I wouldn't do paper labels. But I'm still in my 20's I can't count how many times I have woken up the next day with goose and ciroc bottles in my tanks. With no ill effects.

Specially if you are keeping the larger cichlids. They are so hardy you essentially have to go out of your way to try and kill them. Or sever neglect.

Haha ill have to find the pic but I had the whole back of my 180 lined with corona bottles during a house party a few years back. And honestly I have no idea how many we're even washed. And because I was hungover and lazy they stayed for like a week.

Not promoting doing that. Just saying it happend and my dovii didn't die.

I'm not sure if the bottle is the same over with you guys but the Heineken bottle has a plastic sticker label on it. I'm sure it would be ok to leave it on. I'm sure there are others....
