champagne cork adapter

Postby joechinon » Sun Aug 27, 2006 2:58 pm

I recently bought a champagne cork adapter for my floor corker, but it didn't come with any instructions. Has anybody ever used one of these, and if so, how. It easily attaches to the corker but I don't really understand what to do next.

what kind of corker do you have. The italian corker? do you have pictures of the attachment and your corker so we know what model were dealing with.

It is the Italian floor model, and it has tabs on each side. The champagene adapter hgooks to the tabs. I'll try and post pictures after work today.

Ok, I know what model your talking about. It also has an attachment for bottling beer bottle's. Still post pictures of the champagne attachment.

No reason for photos, I looked at it today and what it does is cap bottles with regular beer caps. I've been had. Anyway I wanted it so I could bottle condition my Belgian style ales and I was already able to do that, I just didn't know it. What the Hell. it's only $12.95.

You can use your italian floor Wine bottler with belgian corks. you do not need campaigne corker if you use belgian bottles and corks.

I tried a regular champagne cork in a belgian bottle and it works fine. I just have to adjust the depth of the plunger so it doesn't push the cork all the way in. Where can I find Belgian corks?

I think b3 has them. I trick I learned is that you can use a drilled stopper on the piston to stop it if the stopcock doesnt go down far enough.
