I'm trying to keep my mind out of the gutter, but what is a urine stick?

They are for testing urine to see if there is sugar or other chemicals there, used in medecine but quite good for wine making. residual sugar can be a problem.

What about that trick with the string while corking to let gas escape? Wet the string, drape it over the lip, cork and then draw the string out. I read this was a great way to relieve the pressure of the compressed air behind the cork. Still bulk aging my first real wine; others were Rieslings that I kegged. Maybe the air pressure + slippery corks were the problem?
