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.

My Mother is growing well..it was a bit of a surprise when it first grew! I wasn't expecting that.

I've just started my third batch. How long do you think it will take this time of year?
I've sat it on the SE facing kitchen windowsill in the hope of getting a little more heat.
