Last week, I bottled a sparkling pyment in Belgian-style bottles with beer corks and wire hoods. I've read some conflicting opinions as to whether it's necessary, or at least beneficial, to age bottles with this type of cork on their sides.
Any thoughts on this?
Also, for future reference, would a beer in Champagne-style bottles with wine corks secured by a crown cap need to be stored on its side as well? Lastly, could anyone tell me what size corks works best for this type of bottle?
