    Sorry I do not explain that we'll.I guy at the Beerstore gave me the plastic champagne corks with wires to cap my Belgian bottles.I bottled them for self carbonation ,they still fizz,but have not built pressure.Can I save them any way?

    only thing would be are they oxygenated or not, if not just recap them and save if so it will only get worse

    Have you ever had the feeling you knew the answer,but had to ask anyway?Revamped with the right corks maybe in a few days I'll know for sure.The yeast looked to be in good shape,and it foamed good after shaking it with the new cork.MAybe wishful thinking and I'm sure it does not take much to be Runt.
