Anyone have a vinegar mother to share?

September 22, 2011 - 12:39pm -- Elagins

My son-in-law, Bill, who brews killer beer, has decided to explore the mysteries of acetic acid and asked me for a vinegar mother.  Unfortunately, I don't have one (at least not one that will produce fine vinegar).  Does anyone out there have some to share, or is able to point me to a source.

Sourdough and vinegar mother issues

August 16, 2009 - 9:34am -- juniperjan


Wanted to put this out there and see if anyone has had a similar experience.  I maintain vinegar mother cultures for both red and white wines and in the past when I have kept sourdough cultures I have lost my sourdough to the vinegar mother.  I maintained the sourdough starters as directed only to open it to use one day and find vinegar. It has happened more than once and it is quite frustrating. I am starting a new culture for sourdough and don't want it happen again. Any suggestions or ideas out there.
