Reply to "What does a crumbling cork say about storage conditions?"

I disagree with all of the opinions above.

Except Doublestop's, which is eminently rational.

Corks crumble almost exclusively due to the structure of their grain. Even the highest grade corks can have undetected anomolies that cause crumbling, but I associate crumbling most commonly with low grade corks.

I have never seen a cork fail because it was "dried out."
