Anyone coming down that has spare room for a few supplies? If so, there is a fine bottle of wine or Sangria (your choice) in your future smile

What are you after? Have a friend coming down in 2 weeks. If items are small they might be able to accommodate - and I have heard nothing but great things about your wine making skills!

Thanks for the compliment! I just need a few bottling supplies - corks and the shrink wrap packets (and perhaps more if they have room) - will PM you. I usually have them shipped, but cannot always depend on the delivery dates and need this before Christmas.

Can you reuse corks. I have many from years of drinking (if I can find the bag) and can bring some in Feb.

Reality is only an illusion that occurs due to a lack of alcohol

Thanks for your offer! I do re-use bottles (so grateful to those here on the island who are saving their bottles for me!), but it's not really a good idea to re-use the corks (can carry mold or bacteria and may not create a firm seal). Plus, they are pretty cheap anyway. I use my old ones in my garden / potting soil to help aeration (in a pot, try putting several in the bottom of the pot to help the water drain).

There is a way to make a cork board out of them (very cute).

If you are in need of anything, I will be there in late February and can pick up some corks or what nots for you if you would like. There is a place in Tulsa called High Gravity and it is only about a 10 min. drive I think they have a web page and if you find something there I can bring it as long as it is ok thru customs.
