    There is little difference between vinegar made and bottled the old fashion way and vinegar made in a large factory. It is mostly in the eye of the beholder. Also to obtain algae control in drinking water or digestive acid balance, there is really no difference between white vinegar, wine vinegars, malt vinegar, or apple cider vinegar. All vinegar is produced from alcohol and the color and some flavor in vinegar is a function of the type of alcoholic beverage that you began with.

    OK to add, use apple cider vinegar, non pasteurized, with the mother and you can jump start your batch. I use my honey from the bees to make a honey wine/mead and keep about 5 gallons after for my honey vinegar.
