Just make sure ya soak your corks for a few minutes before trying to insert them !
The water acts as a lubricant so that the corks will fit flush with the opening of the bottle !
Who puts corks INTO the bottle, except the wine manufacturers and maybe some homebrew folks? I am always looking to get corks OUT of the bottle…
Probably why it’s called “Home Brew.”
Hypothetically speaking, if one were taking a cruise, and said cruise line allowed passengers to bring wine onboard, but didn’t allow passengers to bring hard alcohol aboard, and one wanted to avoid paying $12/drink at the bars on the ship, one could fill the wine bottle with their choice of beverage and re-cork it. Hypothetically.
