Can all glass twist-cap wine bottles be re-used with a standard cork?

Usually- it depends on the lips of the bottle. I have found that it works about 75% of the time with a floor corker.

I've had some success with my all in one capper/corker. I've never tried the hand corker.
As long as the glass in the neck doesn't look thin and cheap, you'll be fine...and if you're worried about it, drink those first.
Seriously. I'm here for BEER
