How Do You Make a Wine Bottle Floater?
Before making your next wine bottle, know this: how do you make a wine bottle floater? There are no clear and easy answers to this question.
The science of wine making is a very complicated one, and it all depends on the type of grapes used and the age of the wine that is produced, and what kind of wood is used for the vats and the barrels, and how the yeasts and bacteria in the environment affect the final wines. No two wineries produce the same wines and they don’t all have the same wine making procedures, so there are not really any one things that “make” the wine a floater or not.
There are also no clear answers to the question of “how do you make a wine bottle floater.” That’s just not the wine making process that you will learn as a beginner, unless you learn to make wine on your own, which most people find to be a very intimidating proposition.
Let’s start by examining the reasons why wine bottles sometimes get stuck and overflows. Believe it or not, there is a scientific explanation of why bottles occasionally get stuck or overflow. Let’s just say that wine makers have to deal with that situation from time to time and you may understand better than I do.
The rule of thumb for those who make wines as a hobby is to keep the right amount of pressure on the cork on the wine bottle. That means no more or less pressure than is necessary.
Let’s look at how do you make a wine bottles overflow again. This time, when bottling wine, have your wine makers put the proper amount of pressure in the wine bottle and also make sure that the cork is always on the pressure level. Make sure that the cork is as tight as possible. If the cork doesn’t seal properly, the pressure inside the bottle is not as good and the wine is most likely going to overfill into the cork.
Next, if the bottle overflows and the liquid spills out, it is important to close the cap on the wine bottle, because any leakage will end up getting in contact with the cork, and will cause more water to enter the bottle. Now you can have a brand new bottle of wine floating around in the corner of your basement. That’s what we call a floater!
Finally, if the wine bottle is tilted the wrong way, or it has been improperly cared for, the cork may be opened too far and will not seal all the way around the bottle. This is a very bad omen, because that means that the bottle is going to overflow.
Of course, you could try to fix this problem by re-priming the bottle after opening, but that would defeat the whole purpose of using the cork in the first place, which is to keep the wine inside the bottle. The only solution is to take the bottle apart and clean the cork thoroughly with the use of a cloth or paper towel dipped in alcohol and some alcohol-based cleaner.
The results of this cleaning should be a bottle that is full of air, so that the wine doesn’t get all over the outside, but not in contact with the cork. The glass on the cork should be completely free of debris and dents or broken portions should be removed.
Finally, if you feel that the wine that you’re bottling isnot yet ready to open and serve, and you don’t want to serve it, that’s fine too. Just make sure that you don’t release the cork on the bottle until the wine has gone through the aging process and matured as much as it is meant to.
