My wife loves cheap champagne. She wouldn't buy it because it didn't come in a box (she loves cheap wine). But, once I started messing around with homemade wine, she had a reason to buy the champagne in a bottle. She normally buys the twist off cap champagne with the plastic "cork" attached to the cap.
Originally, I was going to use them all for wine and just cork them. But, I am now wanting to bottle a gallon or so of my beer before I put it in the keg. I just want some portable beer that can be shared with friends.
Anybody have any thoughts on bottling beer in the champagne bottle and just using the twist off cap? I could cork it and get a wire and basket, but if I can get by for a month or so on the cap, I think I will.
I am also thinking about filling a few from the keg then capping. I just want to see how well they hold the CO2 and for how long.
Any thoughts, advice, warnings?
