Default Portuguese Floor Corker

Mine just arrived from Austin Homebrew, and I must say, the euphemism is SOOOO much better after having "worked the mechanism" a few times. Plus, it sounds way classier than "pile driver."



In all seriousness, this thing ROCKS! I just corked a couple of test bottles, and it works REALLY well.

I can't resist one more...

Thankfully, you don't even have to do any cork soaking!

Forgot to mention: +1 to Austin Homebrew!

Living in Texas means I get charged sales tax, but the fact that I'm about 6 hours from the store means $6.99 overnight shipping!

That is the exact corker I have been using. Don't forget the snoop tip if you are bottling Belgians.
Use a #7 stopper to create a gap leaving enough cork exposed for the cage.

That really is a fantastic corker, I have one for doing my wines. I used a bench corker for a while but it's like night and day how much easier this one is!
