Which mother for beer vinegar

Postby SteveDass on Tue Jul 09, 2019 9:42 am

Hey folks

Im looking to make some beer vinegar and all the retailers i am going to are giving me different answers... Im confused now! I also read Jonathan Sawyers book but even that just says 'mother' ...which one!

I need your HELP please.

For beer vinegar do i use a kombucha, apple cider,red wine vinegar mother or some other mother (scoby) an acetobacter that develops in fermenting alcohol and converts the ethanol into acetic acid.

I'll be very grateful for your help

Cheers
Steve

I think you can just glug in a bit of live vinegar from any source -- I'd use apple cider vinegar because that's what I have, and set it aside. You can aerate with a stream of bubbles to speed it up, but that's optional.

Thanks for replying Christopher.

I have some of that unpasteurised Braggs stuff and will try that!

Do you think a cup full or 100ml in 3 pints of beer should be enough!

Cheers

I don't know for sure, but I suspect a teaspoon would be enough as long as you were patient.
