Just a quick tip. Since the lip around which the wire wraps on champagne
bottles can interfere with the bell of the capper, it is possible to get
less than adequate seals. Chuck Hansen, one of the Fat Chance brewers,
found that using two caps stacked together works pretty well. The top cap
is bent enough to force the lower cap to give a better seal.
