This term is used in two ways by meadmakers. The first defini- tion involves sealing the bottles against outside air once fermenta- tion is complete. A machine is used to apply the caps. Many meadmakers prefer corks, which can be applied with ease. The second use of the term "cap" refers to the somewhat firm layer of fruit that rises to the surface of the must during the primary fermentation. Some recipes call for "punching a hole in the cap" to admit oxygen. The cap, as well as any sediment in the bottom of the fermentation vessel, is left behind at the first racking.

Usually in the form of foil or wax.
