Its a real crowd pleaser.
Was going to make a traditional juniper caraway kraut, but this one keeps ending up in the crock.

I'll have to get back to you with multiple conflicting links. I was hoping you could help me sort it out!

This one has some useful information.

https://www.mountainfeed.com/blogs/l...ur-own-vinegar

This one includes some back story

https://www.fermentedfoodlab.com/how...apple-vinegar/

The conflicting information is about "wild" vs wine yeast, the proportion of sugar, and adding vinegar; none, unfiltered, vs "raw", with "mother".

I added sugar and wine yeast, but had no "mother", which some say gets added on the third day, or after the bubbling stops.

There was a you tube that stressed the importance of two phases; the first is fruit juice to alcohol, which he said should be anaerobic, and the second, alcohol to vinegar, which is aerobic.

ETA


Here is the video

https://youtu.be/bxH9tL78r6g

It seems the take home message was 3-7 days aerobic with brewing yeast and an airlock to convert sugar to alcohol, THEN add the vinegar/mother bacteria, and continue aerobically to convert to vinegar.

Here is another informative video, but with a different take home message. She is using a fruit where fermentation started before the fruit is cut up! Is it yeast or bacterial?

I looked through both sites and am flummoxed.

I watched the video too and I have no idea what is going on.
It is almost as if they are just making soured fruit juice.

Thanks for watching Worth!

I seem to have a "mother" forming on my two versions of pinapple vinegar, so I'm going to keep going. I'll add pictures soon.

In the meantime....
