I have recently made a reisling, a zinfindel (both kits)and a (non-kit) fruit wine. neither of the kits leaked after putting them on their side...but some of the fruit wines oozed a thick, sticky, sugary stuff through the cork. The guys at the wine club said this is normal. Is this true? and is there a way to keep this from happening?
