air space

In article , rum says...
Presumably you are using a bottling wand to fill the bottles? If so. fill the bottle to the top; then when you remove the wand the correct airspace will be left for you.
If not, leave at least an inch (25 mm)

I've always left 1/2 to 3/4 inch, less than 1/2 and it takes forever to carbonate and more than 3/4 and it tends to oxidize especially if storing for long term.
