ZERO
After boiling them (for sanitizing as advised) the papers came off all by itself. Thumbs up for that. Then I used them to cork cap some beer bottles and some mead: No carbonation pressure was build in the beer bottles! And the cork disintegrated and got stuck to the glass mouths of my bottles. Would give this ZERO stars if I could. - Now I am stuck with the rest of my purchase (500 caps), trying to come up with an alternative use....

Williamsbrewing Responds:  We are very sorry that these caps did not work for you and have given you a refund for the 6 packs that you purchased from us.  You may dispose of them as you wish.  We thank you for your business.

My first lost batch
I am giving this a rate of 3 stars only because I could have used them wrong, but I did not get any sort of carbonation out of my Brown Ale. I almost feel as it they were not able to make a good enough seal while carbonating.

Don't soak in Star San.
These caps may be fine if you don't soak them in Star San (or any sterilizer, perhaps even boiling water) prior to bottling.  I gave the caps a quick soak in Star San and let them dry as per usual and bottled. The cider seemed to have a bit of carbonation initially, but as time went on, all the bottles were flat except the one cap that I didn't sanitize but grabbed out of the bag when I was short!  The cork separated from the metal and stuck to the mouth of the bottle on most and had to be peeled off.  I believe Star San might have disintegrated the adhesive between the cork and metal and destroyed to cork enough to prevent a seal.

A cautionary tale.

Could these caps be used to bottle wine in beer bottles?
They could, but there is really no advantage, as bottle caps with plastic liners are more sanitary (cork does not provide any flavor advantage for wine).
