In a nutshell: Buy a ready made vinegar mother if you want to speed up your vinegar production in your new vinegar pot or barrel.
Our vinegar mother will kick start your vinegar production, just add a bottle of our Lolo or other 'live' unpasteurized vinegar, a bottle of red wine and the mother into your pot or barrel. Made of cellulose and acetobacter bacteria (mycoderma aceti ), the vinegar mother will help with your home vinegar production. Do not touch with any metal objects such as a spoon or fork if checking the vinegar mother in the barrel or pot. It's far better to use your hand to carefully pull the vinegar mother out of the barrel or pot if you want to check on her growth spurts! Please leave a note at checkout if you'd prefer a white vinegar mother.
