From Bob Sicurelli of Southampton, New York on 10/29/2015.
I just tried it last weekend and it worked well. It's high quality and the price was cheaper than other shops.
11/3/2013 – Do you also sell the smaller corks for the Bellissima style bottles? If you do what is the price?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: These bottles take a standard (#9) cork. You'll need a corker, of course, but no need for a smaller cork. See below for products/pricing.
9/13/2013 – How well does the mini floor corker work with champagne corks and bottle caps?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: In short, it doesn't. Champagne corks and bottle caps have a very different design. This, and any other corker, work great with standard wine corks in wine bottles.Cappers work with caps, corkers work with corks. Champagne corks are often simply pressed in, and wired down.
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
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?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we have an actual brick-and-mortar store in Everett, WA. People actually walk in and buy stuff!Our address is:Homebrew Heaven9121 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204Heck, you can actually call us on the phone, too! It's 425-355-8865. A person will actually answer as long as it's business hours!
7/31/2007 – I have bought the deluxe beer making kit and now want to try to make your wine. What will I need to buy, I already have the 6 gal glass carboy?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not much, actually. I would recommend starting out by making wine using our varietal wine kits for the ingredients. A good way to make great wine easily. You can always make wine from berries, tree fruit and fresh grapes later on when you have a little experience.As far as equipment, all you will really need is some wine bottles (easy . . .
3/20/2007 – I have previosly purchased your Deluxe Brewing Equipment Kit (for beer) and have brewed some quite tasty pints that I have grudgingly shared with friends. However, Now I would like to "brew" some wine. What other equipment components would I need in addition to the deluxe kit? thank you
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Usually, you have most of what you need to make great wine from our varietal wine kits. A few useful items that you probably want to add, however, are:Corker and corksAnother carboy. 6 gallon is ideal for these kits. You will fit that wine takes longer to complete, and so it ties up your fermenter. A sad thing, but easy to fix. Heck . . .
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?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You sure can. It is literally made of bricks and mortar, in South Everett. Our address is:Homebrew Heaven9121 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204425-355-8865Hours are 10am-6:30pm Monday-Friday and 10am-5pm on Saturdaysand 10am-3pm on Sundays
9/11/2006 – can this be used to cork wine bottles also?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry. It is just used with beer bottle caps. We do have corkers, however, in the wine category...
8/23/2005 – I'm using #9 corks in the mini-floor corker, the adjustment screw is set properly, however out of 30 bottles done, 6 corks only went part way in (3/4"). What could the problem be?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Those bottles are probably over-filled. You need sufficient airspace to allow cork insertion. Allow almost 3" of headspace with filling.
6/21/2005 – My father recently received the Mini-Floor Corker G12M, for Father's Day. I was surprised to find that this item included no operating instructions at all. Never having used one of these machines, how are we supposed to automatically know how to properly set it up and use this device ? Is there any preparation work for the corks, what is . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I have never seen an instruction manual for this corker. If there was one, it would be in Portuguese.Basically, all you do is screw the support leg into the bottom of the unit using the large screw, and stand it up. The only adjustment is the thumbscrew (wheel) on top of the plunger. This controls how far down the cork is inserted. . . .
3/4/2005 – Is the cork depth ajustable on the G12M?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes. Very easy to do. There is a thumb wheel that your turn up or down to adjust cork depth.
12/6/2004 – Is the Mini- Floor Corker easy to use? The two handled corker is really difficult and takes more strength than i can handle.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it is quite a bit easier to use. You can put both hands on the single lever, and use your body weight to help! I switched over to the Mini-Floor Corker some time ago, and find it a real improvement.
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.
6/5/2004 – So are you saying that you don't really have to soak corks? That is contrary to what most people say... Please elaborate.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Correct. There is no need to soak them prior to insertion. This is not just the recommendation from us, but from the manufacturer of the corking device and the corks themselves. If you WANT to, you certainly can, but it is not necessary. Be sure not to NOT boil the corks, that destroys them.
4/8/2004 – Why do you say plastic is better than brass on this corker??
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Just from experience. The plastic iris seems to be smoother, and we've never had a problem with it. Corks slide in nicely, and the whole unit is quite rugged.
3/28/2004 – Does the mini-floor corker have a brassiris?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, it is plastic. We've found these to work better than the brass type.
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.
1/16/2004 – Will this floor corker put corks in 3L bottles?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes; absolutely!
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 . . .
8/9/2003 – Are there any plastic peices on this model corker? And, what are the shipping charges to 85615?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, there are. The diaphram "jaws" are a rugged type of plastic. We have found that they perform better than the brass type jaws. Shipping to your area is about $23.60
