I use Grolsch bottles. No corks. I can store them upright. I get three glasses/bottle. That's two for me and one for the wife. It keeps her happy & doesn't let her get mean.
I only get 2 or 3 glasses out of a regular bottle, Grolsch is single serving size.
I don't think about laying down, or standing up and I haven't had a bottle go bad on me either way, my basement has humidity and is always in the mid sixties so maybe that has something to do with it. I recently bought a rack so everything will be laid down - even screwtops.
