    I made some homemade ACV out of Braggs and frozen juice considerate. I checked on it and there is a film on top. Is that the mothers or mold?

    I didn't know you could make your own - how'd you do it? Wouldn't mold make it smell bad? Maybe you could tell that way.

    I do believe that mothers is on the bottom. Look up making homemade acv online. Hope this helps.

    I generally buy cider vinegar from my local apple orchard and then use some of it to start a new batch when I get toward the end. But I also found a recipe on line.

    You could start with the apples or with already pressed cider. I'd use orchard cider though, since it won't have the preservatives usually found in store cider.
    Good luck. Hope that helps.
