Who am I?

I’m located in the Highland Park sub-sector of Westboro, in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Passions include:
Boats! – especially (though by no means limited to) small rowing, paddling and sailing craft. And wooden boats hold a special place in my heart. We’ve even built a few of them – most recently, a CLC skerry.
Food! – both the cooking and consuming of it, as well as learning about odd and obscure ingredients and the history and culture behind various cooking styles and traditions.

  1. I saw that you got the painted label off the Beau’s bottles, I am a home brewer to, and could you tell me how to take them off.

    • It took a bit of work but I was determined!
      First, I dabbed the paint with a Q-Tip dipped in acetone (be careful with that stuff if you use it), which seemed to soften it just enough to then scrape the paint off with a sharp paring knife. I then used some 400-grit sandpaper to lightly and gently deal with any remaining bits. It was time-consuming but it worked.
      I’m glad I got my Beau’s bottles when I did because they switched from ceramic to glass not long after – too bad. Good luck with the bottles and your brewing!
