Hello everyone,
Briefly I am making elderflower champagne for the first time, its been fermenting away for 5 days so looking to bottle in prosecco bottles, was looking online for the bottle as is or adding priming sugar/carbination drops, cam across a thread on another forum(American) suggesting using plastic champagne corks, but first putting some hydrated yeast in them and then capping with stainless steel pipe mesh, thus keeping the sediment in the Cork whilst upside down during secondary fermentation, there seems to be some success with this method on the other forum, just wondering if anyone else on here has tried it and what success they've had.
Cheers
