Who here has made apple cider vinegar? This video came through my YouTube play list this morning. I have never made ACV, but I have wanted to. This video shows how this woman started it. I hope she shows us the finished product in another video. I always thought you needed the mother of a previous batch of vinegar to start a new batch. What struck me about this is how similar making ACV is to making kombucha, which I have made before. When making kombucha, you need a mother, called a scoby. Everything needs to be well cleaned, with vinegar. You have to be very careful not to let it get contaminated. It can grow mold if you are not careful, and when it does, the whole business needs to get thrown out, including the scoby. The jar she used is the same kind of jar that is frequently used by kombucha brewers. I wonder if I put some tap water through my Berkey, if that is considered filtered water? I do know that letting water set for around 24 hours can allow the chlorine to be released.
