Anyone have success C&Cing Bruery Bottles?
« on: March 25, 2014, 11:12:58 AM »
 I was given a case of bruery bottles with the punts in the bottom, and I'm think of trying to cork and cage then.

Has anyone tried this successfully?

It can be done easily with the right equipment - namely, a champagne corker like this one:

I have one but my LHBS rents theirs out for $10 a day.

Also, those bottles will take the Euro 29mm bottle caps but you need the larger bell for yor bottle capper, about $10.
