    My mother and I started making wine. We set up a system were we are bottling the stuff we are gifting out and keeping long term, then bagging the stuff we are planing to drink in the next 6 months.

    Our issue is that we are having a hard time getting the bags closed all the way.

    Dose anyone have any suggestions for the best way to get the spout to sit all the way down and get a good seal so the bags don't leak.

    Perhaps you would be good enough to tell us what bags you are using?

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen this bag posted before. Have you messaged the manufacturer? How about traditional bottles of different proportions?

    They just a fill stand for it and everything a good one at that. We are looking for some kind of pliers or press. I thought maybe someone in the community may know of something.

    Looks like they are just pushing it on by hand.
