Default corking 375ml wine bottles

Do you push the cork all the way in 375ml wine bottles?
can I use the same #9 corks with my floor corker?

Thanks

Push the corks all the way in, as long as they do not extend down past the neck. Sometimes they can suck into the bottle, and then you have a mess.

I use the same #9 1.75" corks in mine and never had a problem.

Many 375 ml bottles have smaller necks than 750 ml bottles. You might want to invest in some #7 corks.

I bottle primarily in 375 ml bottles and use #9 corks with my floor corker. I had trouble with one brand of corks (too tight), but haven't had any other problems. I have been under the impression that in general 750 ml uses #9, 375 uses #8, and 187 ml uses #7.

I can use #9s with my floor corker, but the bottles are too short. Believe it or not, a hockey puck under the bottle works beautifully! If you don't play hockey, any solid object that won't slip will do.

I've have now lived 11 years in the south and I still carry a puck around in my glove compartment.

You never know when a game might break out!

Hahaha- you can always hope. Of course, you may get wet playing ice hockey in the south.
