I am making some of my first wine ever,though I have brewed beer for 15 years or more. My question is bottling. With the new metal closures on commercial wines, have any of you tried using a bottle capper and capped your wines in small beer bottle size bottles? Would it work? Do number 9 corks fit in a beer sized bottle? See, I am making small 1/2 gallon batches and wanted to spreadout the drinking of it by bottling it in smaller bottles like the 12 oz. beer bottles I have. Its ok if it won't work, as I have a corker and all, but I just got to thinking about alternatives.
