Well that worked really well
We used 4pts of local dry cider, and the original mother. Put it in a honey bucket with a muslin cover over it, and left it .
Today we have perfect cider vinegar with a smooth flavour, none of the catch the back of the throat stuff.
I have kept the mother in the bucket and just left it covered with the vinegar.

Dunno really. I think it's got to ferment first so that the acetobacter can do it's thing. Had the apple juice been pasteurized or sulfited?

Pasteurised, would that make a difference?

Yep. That's what's done it I reckon. If you used fresh-pressed it would work. If it's been pasteurized it'll probably need yeast adding back in to get it moving. You could start a new lot and bung in a bit of bread yeast.

Doh! Should have realised, even when you mentioned pasteurisation I didn't twig!

On to our second batch of vinegar, Mother is growing well.
Paid 3.90 for 4pts of local cider(took my own container). Organic cider vinegar is nearly 5 for 500ml in our local health food shop, so making our own way cheaper.
