Your Source For Making Wine and Beer

Bad Cork

Monday, December 19, 2005

This is the first time since I have been making wine that I experienced a musty looking cork.  It came from my last bottle of Apple Wine which was made in 2003. The ironic thing, is that I had posted about switching to all screw tops instead of corks because of this reason.
There could be a couple reasons for the bad cork.  Poor sanitation is probably the biggest.  Guess I should have soaked the corks in a sanitizer for a longer period.  Or, maybe, I should drink the stuff faster.  Hmmm, time to grab a glass.
