I want to do this at some point too. Check out this BYO article. I think there might be a

Crazy idea I just had: uncap the bottles and put sanitized balloons on top of them. When the
balloons are 1.2 times the size of the bottles, take them off and quickly cap the bottle,

I would boil some zest in a small amount of water for 5 minutes or so and add that to the
