??? Has anyone seen any with a cork closure and if so where and what was the cost??? Sick and tired of giving all my wine away. Not that I don't enjoy hearing how good it is but I would like to enjoy more of it myself and 187ml bottles would be ideal to give to friends so they can taste.

As always, any help is appreciated

Take a look at quality wine and ale here . Just be sure to get the smaller corks they call out for, otherwise you can have alot of fun corking them.

Why not used BEER bottles and cap them for the "give aways"

Tom-

Are there any issues with using a cap verses a cork or screw closure. I do like your idea though.

Thanks for the tip

If you cap them in "long neck" bottles you will be fine for short term bottling. Dont try to cap a screw off bottle. If you are a homebrewer most will have a Beer capper.

Yep, capping some for shorter term is fine and longer term may actually be fine also. Tom, wasnt it you who has a few beers 7 years old in bottles.

Im sureb 10 is just as easy and just a tad bit longer day bjut like I said, Im pretty much the only one drinking here and having 3 different 5 gallon kegs of beer on hand is enough for me and when one is done I really just want something different.
