I will be making some Apple wine and want to make it sparkling, I know how to do this but will this type of wine be OK in a beer bottle with a standard metal caps? Will the caps cause any ill flavors or problems?
Can't really help much on the beer bottle question- I bottle mine in empty soda bottles. I haven't experimented enough on when to bottle; the last batch I did at 1 degree Brix and it still produced enough carbonation I was worried about explosion. (nice thing about soda bottles is ya can unscrew the cap just a little to release a bit of the pressure if this happens.)
I do have questions for ya on how you make yours, though. I'm getting frustrated with spotty results. Any details you can provide? Have you ever experienced a slow starting ferment?
I bottled 3g of Ed Worts Afpelwein in beer bottles and am still drinking them 6 monthes later.. No off flavors, worked great. if you must go in wine bottles though, make sure they are Champagne bottles as regular wine bottles wont stand the pressure.
