I just adjust the spacer screw to the correct level so I get the cork inserted like I want - nomally about 2/3 of the way in.

I have this one and I hate it. Anyone willing to drive to my house can have it for free.

Hello,
Are there simply no larger crown/crimp caps that will fit the large Chimay bottles.  Seems like the best solution in the end.

Thanks

I haven't used them, so I don't know which bottles they will fit and which they won't, but there are larger ones available that fit bottles like The Bruery uses.

Yes, those fit Champagne bottles but Chimay style Belgian bottles can't be capped.
