I recently made a wine from a nice organic Summer berry cordial (1 gallon). After about 5 weeks (racked it once at the end of week 3) fermentation had slowed considerably, to about once every 15/20 minutes or so. I took a decision not to add campden or fermentaion stopper to the wine as I have done in the past. I felt that fermentation was slow enough to not casue any undue problems. As I tend to drink most bottles (saving one or two) within a few months (still experimenting with different brews) I tend to use the corks with the platic toppers, the ones that push in quite easily. This morning, I noticed one of the corks had been almost totally pushed out and the wine was (very very slowly) dripping from the bottle. I recorked and tidied up.
My quetion (finally getting to it) is are the rest of the bottles likely to behave this way? As I am using the stopper type corks will the cork always give before the galss bottle? Should (or can) I uncork and recork with a new cork to release the pressure from the bottles? Should I just leave them?
Thanks in advance.
