Hooded Wires for Belgian Beer Bottle - 60 ct
Cinch down to maintain a tight seal on carbonated bottles. A Champagne wire tightener (#7717) is highly useful for this! Bags of 60.
These are the perfect size for Belgian style corks. I make my own sparkling wine methode champenoise in American bottles so getting the right hood is important. Everything as expected and timely.
Look pretty good on. You have to be very careful not to over twist and break them. Once you get the hang of it they work like a charm.
Four stars because Iâ??m not quite sure how theyâ??ll work yet. Iâ??ve used to cap #9 corks in the 750ml champagne bottles sold by northern brewer. The wire hoods do not really fit the bottle necksâ??maybe with some other kind of cork. Whether theyâ??ll perform functionally remains to be seenâ??I used the corks to seal cider during in-the-bottle fermentation/carbonation. Hoping theyâ??ll seal better than the EZ cap bottles did, which seemed to leak occasionally. For presentation/appearance, they donâ??t look as expected with 750ml champagne bottles and #9 corks.
I like these because they're cheap, the quality is basically the same as any others but no other supplier has Belgian cork and cage supplies for so little even taking the shipping into consideration.
Received our items on time and everything was perfectly matched to our order. Thanks again Northern Brewer
