Vinegar

I think it was Unity who posted the article on home made vinegar. I finally got around to starting one. I'm using Cab-Franc wine. Will start a cider job as soon as I find some hard cider.
Should have a good batch ready this summer when my raspberries, peppers, basil, pears, plums and stuff starts coming in.
Make some weird $hit.

Just got off the phone with my wine making buddy who said he has some awesome hard cider from 1997 in his basement. We'll use some for the vinegar jug and drink the rest. Life is good.

So do you have to grow one of those "mother" things?

I goggled "beer and wine making suppliers" . Found one that offered vinegar starter (mother).
They send you an 8 oz jar of starter (pieces of mother and vinegar). Mix it with 8 oz of water and 16 oz good wine. Store jug out of sun light in a warm place for 2 to 3 months; longer if cooler. Then measure acidity to hit 6% or near there and it's done.
Pasteurize it in small bottles and it will mellow with age (6 moths to a year).
I also ordered a small booklet with instructions.
