So....I bottled about 18 bottles and let them be for about 2 weeks. I couldn't help myself and wanted to try my first batch. I removed the cork, which was super hard and I noticed a slight line of residue just below the cork. Now I must admit these were older corks, inherited from the trusted person I bought them from. I rinsed them off with sanitizing liquid but I'm afraid I might have contaminated corks. I still have two more carbouys aging and I will buy brand new corks for them. I have also attached a picture.
