Started my batch yesterday, basically make beer and then add Vinegar culture.

 

Made a starter batch, cooked up malt. This morning lots of froth and looks like its calming down already.

Once its done then Il add the Vinegar culture.

Looks great! I would love to do that sometime, but I'm worried about contaminating my home brew, fermentation area, and brewing equipment.

wash out with baking soda, should not be a problem, or have a dedicated bucket, got this one from homedepo for $5 (food grade) same bucked without the markings in brew stores for $35.

I'm super sketched out about having any acetobacter anywhere near my brewing area. I do a lot of long term sours, and just a touch of acetobacter infecting something while I take a gravity sample, or add fruit, etc...could make me have to dump a whole lot of beer!

Maybe a 3 gallon batch of vinegar in the shed this Spring/Fall would work. I'll probably mash/sparge some grain, ferment with something clean like US-05, then add a bunch of fruit along with the acetobacter.

Durian vinegar?!😂

Dont know if its the same animal as the wild one, this is like a gell, I have mine covered with cheesecloth to keep crap out. Its in the kitchen. Once its done then add the culture and wait a month, gets reall smooth with age like a wine. I posted a while ago on another thread what the culture looks like.

I tip my hat to you dragonsfire!  Looks like a great batch. I've done many things but never attempted vinegar (on purpose.) Made some balsamic on accident some years back. Thought it a fail at the time (wine) and chucked it, not realizing what I had. I am impressed at your endeavors and I thank you for this thread.

Decanted today and added Vinegar Culture. Looks like SG increased not decrease.

Liquid nice and clear, the dregs going to keep and try it for bread making.

Poured it back into the bucket and covered with cheesecloth. Now its a waiting game.

GOT UPDATE malt vinegar how it going? This has to be the best hands on I have found on this process thanks for keeping us up on the process.

THE first time I tried vinegar was a flop and trying again soon as I get more information I really didn't cut my wine enough on this picture soon after I trashed it was stinking up the house .f63edaa80c19d795f2b84111a58a888a.jpg
