Being the pack rat that I am I save all the wire cages and corks from Belgian and champagne style bottles. I know I can get at least one use out of the cages. Never was sure why I saved the corks though.
Now I have a corker and I am sorely tempted to reuse corks. I have some new Belgian corks, but man are they expensive overall! When they run out, well. My half baked idea is that I can sulfite the corks or steam them or...
Seriously asking for contamination aren't I.
I just need to hear someone else (other than the little voice in my head) tell me NO!
