Greetings, Happy, Merry....... Stuff..............
Today I used my new floor corker for the first time that my family gave me for my birthday this past fall.
I bottled 5 gal of Pinot Noir and I could not believe how much easier the floor corker was!
Wine was started first week in September, degassed and racked three times, then finned with super-clear.
It looks and tastes wonderful!
i used synthetic corks and I soaked them in a starsan solution for about an hour. I used new bottles.
Everything went well, but I have a few bottles that the corks are rising up out of the bottle! I pushed them down, but they keep trying to pop up again.
Sort of like a slow motion game of whack a cork....
What did I do wrong?
