Our distributor gave us a tip that he uses when corking Belgians – put a #7 stopper over the plunger rod of the floor corker so that only 1 3/4″ of the rod is exposed. This will stop the cork from going into the bottle too far. A wire hood can then be fastened over the remaining 6/8″ – 7/8″ of cork sticking out of the bottle.
Attention: These corks come sanitary in the SEALED FACTORY PACKED bag ready to be corked into a bottle. Do not sanitize or boil these corks it will reduce the integrity of the cork.
