Custom Belgian Wire Hoods

(1/1)

AmandaK:
I am hoping that this isn't a question with no answer, so I'm asking early.

Long story made short is that for our wedding in September '14, my fiance and I are brewing all of the beer. We are also brewing a version of my BGSA to serve as the 'champange' toast. We will be bottling these in 750mL Boulevard Smokestack bottles. I already know the exact size of the cork needed for these bottles, but my real question comes with the wired hoods.

Is there a vendor out there that will make custom wire hoods for a cork and cage finish? I can find plenty of custom bottle caps, but that isn't what I'm looking for.

Sounds awesome.  Why don't you try to contact Boulevard (hopefully someone more on the dirty side vs clean front office side) and give them your story.  It wouldn't surprise me if they would send you some

I know I found a company a while back while I was looking for custom bottle caps online,but can't seem to find it again. However I did also find this link which might be useful if you want to do it yourself. I know the tutorial is bottle caps, but would work the same on blank cages. http://www.blockheadstamps.com/TechniquesPages/bottlecaps.html

Yeah, I should just ask a few friends here in KC. That's how I know the size of corks, but maybe I'll also get lucky with the hoods too.

These can be "custom" tightened to fit just about any bottle.

Congrats on the wedding!!
