comment I added sugar and bottled the beer…aged and no carbonation
Where was your beer stored? It is the yeast that produce C02, and if they are frozen they won't be doin' much

comment How far to insert stopper in carboy?
I know it may seem obvious for me but did you dry both the bung itself and the lip and inside of the carboy as well?

comment Bottling/Corking
To follow this up, I received my corker and it was a biggin'! We also bottled with it this passed weekend... I don't know how or why anyone would use anything BUT a floor corker. +1 for that product. I know this didn't necessarily answer the beer capper question but the corker for sure is useful!

I recently bought this one as well to cork our first wine, I will check back to let everyone know how it works.

I have looked at these but i have not heard what ppl say about them. Let me know if that one works well and better yet if it can be used as a bottle capper as well.
