Thread: sealing bottles

  1. #1

    Default sealing bottles

    We just bottled our first batch of mead using corked bottles. The kit I bought had shrink wrap whichamacallits to help protect the cork and dress up the bottle BUT, in doing some reading on meadmaking, I read something about sealing my bottle tops with wax. Since I am a beeswax candle maker and already have melted wax available at all times, I thought this sounded like something I would like to do. I also think it would add a more "natural" look to the bottles. Has anyone used beeswax to seal their bottle tops, and, if so, how did you do it?
