Not vital with a champagne yeast but wouldn't hurt. May slow the ferment a bit though......

I think I am going to bottle it very soon. I'm not too sure if I'm going to carbonate it or not. Any suggestions? Do you guys put them in wine bottles in Cork it or put it in beer bottles and put caps on?

Was going to bottle it today, but I measured the FG and it was 1.010. at least I got to try a delicious sample of it. I'm going to let it sit for another month and measure again.
