My husband and I have been brewing beer for a while and love it. I just got my wine stuff today. Looking forward to getting to know some of you and getting helpful hints. Thanks

first wine batch

Is a 4 week wine kit - Sauvignon Blanc.
I have a question - can you use the small wine bottles (that come in the 4 pk from the store) with the screw on top. What I wanted to do is make some small bottles for some of my friends to try it out with me. We wanted to try it at the 28 day when bottling to see what it taste like. Then every 2-3 weeks.

Will it still age in an opened bottle?
:confused:

As long as the screw caps on those little bottles are in good shape you should be able to use them. AFAIK, you cannot get replacement screw caps for those.

Usually wine in a bottle that is not full spoils in less than a week. There are gases that you can spray into the bottle to displace the air or vacuum stoppers that will extend the life of the wine.
