It is wise to do use the swingtop bottles with the corks attached for bottling? I'm trying to gather as much info as possible so I can invest smart when I do decide to make some wine.:confused:

Tmooka:

Can you point us to a picture?

To me a swing top bottle does not have a CORK attached. See http://www.ezcap.net/

These should work just fine for wine; however I have only used them for beer.

I've been using the type Steve has indicated for both beer and wine and they work just fine. For wine I always use new gaskets since they may be in use for an extended period of time.

I have used the "Grolsch" bottles for wine and they worked fine (although I never stored them for more than a year...not intentionally, just stating the facts). I also don't know if I had to, but I stored them upright (since theres no cork to keep moist.

Have fun with your kit!
