Putting older posts here. Going to try to keep the novice forum pruned about 90 days work. The 'good' old stuff is going to be put into appropriate forums.

I reckon it depends on how you store the bottle. Upright should be fine, laying on its side would probably cause the cork to disintegrate and leach nasties...
You could try wrapping a thin layer of PTFE around the cork before fitting it...
My understanding is that wine corks should be good upto about 20%, but they are better than their metal cousins...
