There are three parts to the Zork, the plastic
stopper (or plunger as the Zork folks put it) that fits inside the
bottle, an inner metal foil that keeps oxygen out of the wine, and
an outer plastic cap that fits around the neck of the bottle. To
open a bottle, you peel a plastic tab at the base of the closure.
It unwinds until you get to the top of the bottle. Then, you simply
pull the cap/stopper with a twist and you hear a nice pop as the
bottle is opened.

12/30/2010 -- For first time brewers who aren't sure how serious they are going to get, would the Zorks work to cork and bottle wine, or would I need to buy a corker and corks? Thanks!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, the Zorks would work well enough to get you started. They are pretty handy, actually. I use a rubber mallet to quickly "install" them.
5/17/2010 -- what is your phone number?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We can be reached at (425) 355-8865Our toll free order number is (800) 850-2739
11/16/2009 -- Am making my own drink mixers and bottling to give away as Christmas presents. I have 375 ml wine bottles. Would like to use "zork" caps to close and seal. My question...How do you insert them and seal initially? Do they come with directions? Must I have any special tools? All videos that I could find only show them being unzipped and . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No instructions are included, and at first I found them difficult to push in. A light tap with a rubber hammer works well, however. Very easy once you get used to it.
1/26/2008 -- I live about an hour (if traffic is good) from the address on your website. Do you have an actual store or is everything here based solely online?

1/24/2007 -- I use regular no. 9 corks and a floor corker. I let leave my bottles upright for 3 days after bottled, according to directions, then i put them in a wine rack, but i noticed i had a couple of bottles that leaked a drop or two, do i need to use better corks? will my wine go bad from air leak?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I don't see where you have bought either corks or a corker from us. Have no idea what you are using, what directions you are referring to or how severe the problem might be as a result.
11/5/2006 -- I live in Seattle, can I come and pick up the bottles in Everett? Do you have a "brick and mortar" store?

10/6/2004 -- My bottles measure at the top 3/4" inside diameter. I ordered #9 corks from you and they do Not fit. Can you please tell me what size I should have ordered. My wine is ready to be bottled and I need to order the correct size immediately.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Are you using a corker? A #9 cork should work just fine, but it is necessary to use a corker to insert them. Finger pressure won't do it.
3/15/2004 -- How do you get the corks to go into the bottles the ones that I get seems much bigger than the bottle.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: By using a corker. The corker compresses the cork on the way down to the bottle. The cork NEEDS to be bigger than the opening for it to work. This corker does a nice job of it. Insert the cork, place over the bottle, and press down on the handles.
10/12/2003 -- WIll the mini-floor corker work with dry corks or do the corks have to be boiled/soaked? Also, What size and type of corks do you recomend with it and how does it differ from your adjustable double lever corker?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it works beautifully with dry corks. We do NOT recommend boiling corks in any case. We recommend our standard, #9 corks with this corker.The double lever corker pushes the cork down a barrel that compresses it as it on it's way down. The floor corker has a diaphram that compresses the cork first, and THEN pushes into the neck. Both . . .
