Hi all
Well I just ordered a PH test strip and some Nomacorc 9x1.5 Synthetic Corks from NB. My question is do I need to sock the synthetic corks before I use them? Since they are synthetic corks I would think I could just dip them in sanitizer for about 5 min and not sock them. What do you all do when you use this kind of corks?

Thanks

Roger

They don't need to be soaked.

Even with the composite corks, most are now coated and they don't recommend soaking or boiling, I always dump 'em in sanitizer before I get the siphon going when I bottle...
