I have a mead that has been sitting bottled in a cool underground closet for about a year, and the corks appear to have some mold growing on the outside. Apparently the closet is a bit more moist ...
Do normal corks and normal corkers work with them? Is there a greater risk of breaking the neck of the bottle during corking?
After downing a bottle of Saison Dupont last night and wishing to re-use the bottle, I wondered if any home brewers have "capped" their brews using corks? The bottle looks like it might be re-usable ...
I'd like to start corking some of my more delicate brews. Is there a reason to switch to corking? Certain styles? And, is it difficult/recommended for a small setup? Thanks.
