The way I read / interpreted it was "book" = "soak". I'm with you Rocky, don't want my corks soaking in anything and use the "Corkidor" setup that you described, letting the fumes do the sanitizing for me............"used to be book them a bit to sanitize and soften them up just a little bit." Cmason, is this a typo or is this a term with which I am unfamiliar?
I have an old salad spinner, the three piece type with a bowl, basket and top. I pour K-meta solution in the bowl, put the corks in the basket, place the top in position and let the corks sit for an hour or so while I bottle the wine. If the corks seem too dry, I may spritz them with a fine spray of K-meta.
