Wax for Sealing Bottles - BLACK - 5 lb.

Bottle sealing wax provides a unique, clean and upscale appearance. It is a popular way to differentiate a special wine from the rest of them.

One pound of wax may be enough for 40-50 bottles, however, this will depend on your usage rate.

How to Use

How to apply the wax to your bottles:

  • Place the wax beads in a small pot or clean tin/aluminum can. This pot or can is then placed into boiling water to create a "double boiler". As the wax heats in the double boiler, stir occasionally. It will take 10-15 minutes to melt the wax into a smooth consistency.
  • Maintain wax at 180-190 F. Monitor the temperature of the wax and stir often. Beware that the wax is flammable. If needed, use fire extinguisher, not water, to put out a flame.
  • To apply wax to the neck of the bottle, simply dip it into the wax for 10-15 seconds. It will dry rather quickly once removed.
  • When you are finished, cover the pot/can with tin foil and save it for the next batch.
