    Don't forget you need bottles that won't explode, most old bottles that had something fizzy in it will do, you don't have to have Champagne bottles.

    yeah thx , ive made it before ,ive only ever had a few explode (and tbh it was prob my own lazyness that caused that ,not checking gravity properly) the bottles i have are just normal green 750 ml wine bottles , i got them online and have been ok so far ,ive used them for over 5 years and not had many probs ,cleaning thems a pain but its worth it

    hi all , i bottled 2 batches yesterday , 58 bottles in total ,pleased with that , ive got 1 more to do today , ive been reading stuff on 2nd fermentation and temps , i was going to put them in the cupboard where the fv`s were ,i was thinking if the temp was good enough to ferment the 1st bit then it would be fine to do the 2nd bit but ive read the temp needs to be higher ? does anyone have any thoughts on this ? i could move them up the shed and the daytime temps would be much higher but the nights would be colder ,any thoughts welcome ,cheers
