Will ACV react with brass parts in an automatic waterer?

    We installed an automatic waterer that has brass parts that contact the water. I had planned to put a small splash of ACV in the waterer each day for my chickens but I wanted to find out first if it would react with the brass. I haven't been able to find anything on it. I don't want to harm the birds or mess up the waterer. Anybody know?

    Huh, I never thought about that. But I think you're right, apple cider vinegar would most likely react to brass.
