I tried to google this and read another post that said something similar but I don't understand why. Glass should be okay when heated, just like when you put them in the dishwasher. The only variable here would be the cork. I wasn't thinking about submerging the corks themselves, just the body of the wine bottle, but I'm not sure what would happen.

not to be disrespectful to your family but they are idiots. if the wine had a bacteria infection you would know and well if you dont like yeast then dont drink alcohol because it comes from yeast...

Then stabilize the wine, [back sweeten], let it settle out, rack, then bottle. Of course, if they can't understand that you used chemicals to kill off all bacteria (a long time ago) and yeast, then maybe they don't understand the process enough. Educate them, have them help you make a fresh batch, maybe they'll learn enough to love it, and subsequently drink much of your cellar.
