How to Take Mother of Vinegar & Put it in Distilled Vinegar


Mother of vinegar, a substance that forms in fermenting alcoholic liquids, is useful if you want to make vinegar at home. You can either purchase starter mother of vinegar, or you can filter mother of vinegar out of aged apple cider vinegar with a coffee filter. When using Mother of Vinegar to make your own vinegar, follow specific protocols to obtain optimal results.

Things You'll Need

  • 1-gallon jar
  • Wine
  • Distilled water
  • Mother of Vinegar
  • Coffee filters
  • Expose a half-and-half mixture of apple cider and vinegar to 80-degree Fahrenheit temperatures for a few days. The result will be a thin scum on the top, which is a mixture of cellulose and bacteria known as Mother of Vinegar. Filter the Mother of Vinegar with coffee filters. Alternatively, purchase Mother of Vinegar online.

  • Pour a solution of two parts wine and one part distilled water into a 1-gallon jar. Add the Mother of Vinegar.

  • Cover the jug with cotton cloth and seal it. Keep it in an area that is not too cold, such as your pantry or kitchen. Allow it three to four months to form vinegar.
