    instead of ACV, would it be possible to use water kefir, or even whey from milk kefir for that matter, to soak chicken feed or make FF?

    I don't use anything as it isn't necessary. You are wanting to capture the wild yeasts that are floating around in the air, just as you would for a sourdough starter. Once you have your ferment going you just use a bit of the fermented food to seed the next batch (or just refill the container that you've fed out from).

    This is the best site for explaining the process:
