4.7 / 5.06 ReviewsI have mixed feelingAll the things are useful, you will need them, but if you stick with wine making you will have to rebuy better quality replacements._x000D_The corker is ok for small batches, but not for 6 gallon batches._x000D_The kit sis not a bad addition, before you decide to spend $100+ on a better corker, and other equipment, so if you aren't sure, then its a worthwhile investment._x000D__x000D__x000D_January 6, 2013bottlesThis kit comes with everything you need. It was well packed. Great price. I haven't tried the corker yet!January 8, 2013Must haveThis is a must have for anyone starting out making smaller batches of wine.

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 4 answersDo the corks have to be a certain size?BEST ANSWER: Not sure if this will answer your question but this is what I have learned. I order wine bottles from Midwest Supplies and can only guess the bottle openings are the same size. I use to use #8 cork corks and they worked fine with a small cork plungers, I do not think the #8 cork corks would last for long term storage. I bought a double handle corker and I now use #9 synthetic corks. The #9 fits tighter but the double handle corker works wonderfully with the #9 syn. corks. The #9 syn. cork fits tighter and will now rot out so it will last longer for long term storage. I am just a guy who has learned to make wine from you tube videos and reading a lot. Its been fun and my friends love my wine. I hope what I learned with my bottling will help you decide what cork size and type you might want to go with. Happy wine making, JimWhat size are the bottles?BEST ANSWER: These are standard 750 ml wine bottles, SKU 7073 on our site. - Mike W, Midwest Supplies
