Simple Homemade Vinegar:
- Fill pot up to two-thirds capacity with a mixture of 75% wine and 25% commercial vinegar. We recommend using vinegar with a live mother.
- Keep the pot in a room where temperature ranges from 68°F to 86°F (20°C to 30°C) for three to four months.
- When vinegar is ready (taste to check), use the tap to pour into a bottle and refill pot with same amount of wine.
- Wait two weeks after adding wine before dispensing more vinegar.
